BIOTECHNOLOGY MASTER'S PROGRAM FORMS

Please click the link below for the form you need and save the .pdf file to your computer. You will then be able to fill out the form as a pdf on your computer. You will not be able to fill out the form from the website. Please follow all instructions listed on the form itself.

BIOT 599: Independent Study registration
Many students are interested in doing practical work in addition to their classroom based studies and we fully encourage students to do so. It is the student's responsibility to locate a project and follow the instructions for registration and grading. An independent study project may be done on campus at one of our many labs or off campus at perhaps a biotech or phramaceutical company. Students cannot be paid for their work for an independent study. The total maximum credit allowed of independent study for the degree is 3.0 credit units.

Laboratory requirement waiver
Students who feel they have a significant amount of prior laboratory experience are welcome to request a waiver of the requirement. An approved lab waiver means the student does not have to take a lab course. Students must however, still earn the required 11 credit units for the degree. The form asks for a replacement course which must be from SEAS, SAS, or SOM and 500 level or higher.

Statistics requirement waiver

Students who feel they have a significant amount of prior statistics experience are welcome to request a waiver of the requirement. An approved lab waiver means the student does not have to take a statistics course. Students must however, still earn the required 11 credit units for the degree. The form asks for a replacement course which must be from SEAS, SAS, or SOM and 500 level or higher.
