The Biology Advisors meet with students to discuss a variety of topics, including graduation requirements, semester course planning, career goals, graduate school or professional school intentions, and more. We strive to provide the best advising experience for our students regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, age, nationality, etc, by treating all students equally and with the utmost respect.

As a team our shared goal is to guide students through college in order to be successful undergraduate students who are prolific in their future career and community.

Appointments are 30 minutes long and are scheduled 24 hours to 2 weeks in advance.

To schedule an advising appointment with a Biology Advisor, please select one of the buttons below.

Once signed in to the USF E-scheduler, please select Biology from the AREA drop-down menu.

If you are not able to come to campus for an extenuating circumstance you can request a Skype Appointment by emailing bioadvise@usf.edu.

  • Skype appointments are not recommended and are only available in emergency situations that hinder a student from coming to campus. In-person appointments are more effective, so we recommend that you come to campus if it is possible.
  • If approved for a Skype appointment, you will be required to email a copy of your unofficial transcripts (including current courses) at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment, and follow the instructions laid out by the advisor who has approved your Skype appointment.
  • If you do not have access to a computer please make note of such in your email to our office.

We love to meet with prospective students. However, we kindly ask that prosepctive students do not schedule an appointment during the below dates, as these are the busiest times of the year for our current students.

  • Jan 1 to Jan 15
  • March 1 to May 15
