NOTES:

  • BIO 900 is an unspecified elective that counts toward the 120 hours required for graduation. It does not, however, fulfill Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirements.
  • Courses with an "NS" designation, including BIO 901, count toward Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirement for a Natural Science.
  • Note that only one equivalent of a course may be transferred in (i.e. GMU's BIOL 246 and BIOL 305 are both articulated as MU's BIO 260). All additional instances will be transferred as BIO 900 (Biology Elective).
