Pre-University Biology

This course will introduce students to the fundamentals of biology, and prepare you for university-level studies.

This non-credit course meets SMU's entrance requirement for admission to the Bachelor of Science program. It will fulfill the admission requirement to most other post secondary institutions as well, but it is up to the student to ensure it's accepted by the specific institutions they apply to.

Students must have access to a computer and the internet, as the course will be delivered entirely online.

Please note that class dates and times may be subject to change.
