Office of Undergraduate Biology
The Office of Undergraduate Biology is staffed with advising professionals who help students plan for and reach their academic and career goals.
Biological sciences majors are enrolled in either the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences or the College of Arts and Sciences.
NOTE: The minor in biological sciences is being discontinued effective fall 2021.
To major in biological sciences at Cornell, apply to either the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.
Biological sciences concentration checklists
The OUB’s biological sciences checklists serve as an advising tool for students to track foundation and concentration requirements. They do not include College of Agriculture and Life Sciences or College of Arts or Sciences college requirements.
The OUB created a “Concentration Summary” document that provides a high-level overview and some specific considerations for each concentration to serve as an additional advising tool.
Students are responsible for understanding all degree requirements, appropriate course sequencing and prerequisites. Students should consult the Courses of Study for the year they matriculated to Cornell.
