Selecting courses, advising prior to registration, providing information regarding college and university requirements, transfer programs, and guiding students along the path to graduation and beyond are just a few of the services provided by the BARC.   

All Biology  majors that have completed CHEM 1110/1111 should come to the BARC (Biology Advising and Resource Center) for advising, unless they have arranged for a faculty advisor.  Students that have not yet sucessfully passed CHEM 1110/1111 are generally seen by advisors in the AAC-Academic Counceling Center (Students beginning college at Memphis), or the CAT-Center for Academic Transition (students transferring to Memphis from other schools).

Biology majors should either have an assigned Faculty Advisor or go to the BARC (Biology Advising & Resource Center) for advising.

All students should come to the BARC for general information on Biology Permits, Degree Requirements, and Career Information.
