Biology: Transfer Graduation Plan for Success (GPS)

Sample Plan: Full-time Student with Developmental Education

This transfer GPS prepares students to pursue a four-year degree in Biology at a Florida public university or Florida College System (FCS) institution. Courses listed are common prerequisites for a biology major at the bachelor's level and will satisfy the general education and elective credits within Eastern Florida State College's A.A. degree program. For more information on common prerequisites, check the statewide advising manual at floridashines.org.

Spaces left blank are provided for planning purposes.

This transfer GPS is a guideline and does not guarantee admission to a college or university. Requirements may vary by institution and can change each year. Students are encouraged to consult an EFSC advisor and check with the advising or admissions office at the intended transfer institution.

Possible Concentrations: Biology, Biotechnology, Marine/Aquatic Biology, Microbiology/Bacteriology
Potential Careers: Physician, biochemist, biological technician, dentist, chiropractor, conservation scientist, ecologist, genetic counselor, health educator or communication specialist, nutritionist, physician’s assistant/nurse practitioner, medical or health services manager, pharmacist, researcher, physical therapist, pharmaceutical or medical sales representative
