BMD Proposed Program of Study

Upon acceptance into the BS in Biomedical Sciences Program, students are provided with a course schedule that they are required to follow throughout the program. Failure to follow the schedule provided will result in the revision of the student's schedule which may make the student ineligible to enroll in specified program courses and/or delay graduation from the program. If a student is unable to follow the course schedule for any reason, please contact Brooke Walker, BMD Program Adviser, 996-4942, as soon as possible for advisement and schedule revision
