2 Students placed by examination or an adviser into 

  must subsequently register for EXPOS-UA 1 .

3 Approved Humanities and Social Sciences electives are courses with the following prefixes: AH, AN, CAM, EN, MD, MU, PL, PS, HI, STS, SEG or URB. One course must be at the 3xxx/4xxx level. At least one elective must be a writing-intensive course labeled by “W.”

4 Electives for the Option in Biomedical Sciences: Two courses must be chosen from the following list or must be approved by an adviser, subject to the courses being offered in a given semester. Graduate courses may be taken only by students with junior standing and a C+ average or better, unless otherwise approved by the adviser. The remaining courses are free electives.

Graduate courses may be taken only by students with junior standing and a C+ average or better, unless otherwise approved by the adviser. The remaining courses are free electives.

7Students may replace 8 credits of senior research with either (a) 8 credits of advanced technical electives in disciplines related to the BMS major (CM, BMS, CBE, BT, BE, BI) or (b) 4 credits of guided studies (CM-UY 471X  or BMS-UY 471X ) and 4 credits of advanced technical electives in disciplines related to the BMS major (CM, BMS, CBE, BT, BE, BI).

NOTES:
All laboratory courses in chemistry require a breakage deposit. The department usually does not grant transfer credits to students who, while registered at the School of Engineering, take biology or chemistry courses at other schools.
