*Students must complete a two-course Anatomy and Physiology sequence (BIO 201 and 202) for this major. Because there is no UAB equivalent to BIO 201 and 202 individually, students transferring from Alabama community colleges should take both BIO 201 and 202 at their community college or wait to begin this sequence at UAB. Students must earn a grade of “C” or higher in all math, science, and major courses.
