Research Elsewhere

It is possible to get 302 credit at an other institution

 

Off-Campus Research

Students may complete the research requirement by conducting research off-campus, provided that the student has Biology Curriculum Committee approval and that the research experience is comparable to an on-campus research experience.

At least one month before the research is to begin, the student must:

After research has been completed, the student must:

  • Submit research report to on-campus faculty sponsor and give a research presentation. Research reports must include an introduction (and review of relevant literature), materials and methods, results, discussion, and reference cited.
  • Petition to the Biology Curriculum Committee to waive 302 (see below)
  • Make up three credits with another 3-4 credit biology course above the 200 level.

Petitions to the Biology Curriculum Committee:

Petitions to waive the 302 requirement must be received by the Curriculum Committee at the completion of the research project. A petition to the Curriculum Committee must include the following items:

1) a formal cover letter requesting a waiver of 302;

2) a copy of the research report;

3) a letter from the off-campus research supervisor describing your role in the research and an evaluation of your work;

4) a course waiver/substitution form (available from Registrar's Office or Biology Office) filled out.

The Curriculum Committee reserves the right to deny acceptance of a waiver petition if it feels that the student has not demonstrated completion of an appropriate research experience.
