Current Biology & Zoology Majors
If you are meeting about a registration PIN or future term planning, complete the tasks below before your appointment. Students who come unprepared may be rescheduled.

(1). Determine what courses you have completed and still need by reviewing your MyDegrees Checklist (MyOregonState).
(2). Plan how and when to take remaining courses using the Biology or Zoology Advising Guides (NOTE: The OSU catalog does not acurately project past the next term so you need the advising guides to do this). Create a draft a plan for next TERM (first year students) OR next YEAR (students registering for sophomore year or later) using the guides. Consult the Biology option or health profession advising guides as appropriate. 
(3). Click on the "Planner" tab in the MyDegrees header and enter your plan (see above) in the MyDegrees Planner (MyOregonState). (NOTE: This is not Scheduler). Utilize the MyDegress Planner tutorial as needed.
