No, only the department chair can give you permission to enroll in a closed class. Contact the academic chairs at the nearest campus.
In general, it's not a good idea. Certainly not if one class is the prerequisite for the other. Most students should not take more than two science courses with labs in one semester.
Yes. The labs are not offered separately at MCC but instead are integrated with the course in a four semester hour format. Since the lab is part of the course and your course grade, you are required to take it.
Both Biology Concepts (BIO 100) and General Biology Majors I (BIO 181) will satisfy the biology requirements for admission to the Nursing Program at MCC. If you plan to go on for a B.S.N. degree, be sure to check the specific requirements of the nursing school you plan to attend as requirements do vary.
Biology usually requires more than the usual amount of study and practice. Satisfactory completion of the course prerequisites is very important. Following are a few more suggestions worth remembering:
For supplemental instruction in specialized programs of study, students should contact their instructors for additional assistance and study group opportunities.
Always feel free to contact any of the Life Sciences Faculty at Mohave Community College. It is very important to know that you are registering for the correct course with regard to your major and to clearly understand the course prerequisites and content before registering.
Yes. The BIO 100 (Biology Concepts), BIO 181 (General Biology Majors I) and BIO 182 (General Biology Majors II) courses can be used to meet the General Education Core curriculum requirement for science at MCC and most universities.
Most of the time there is no problem with transferring MCC life sciences courses to other universities; but, especially for science courses, you should always check the transfer policy of the university to which you intend to transfer. Transfer information is available at AZTransfer.
