Academic Advising

Transferring to UVic - Biology

Here's what to take in your first year at Camosun if you're planning to transfer to UVic.

Update: This outline has been compiled from the Faculty sections of UVic’s online 2017-2018 Undergraduate Academic Calendar (May 2017)

These are the courses UVic recommends for first year so that you stay on track with the overall requirements of the program. While we have followed UVic's program outline as closely as we can, sometimes we add suggestions and recommendations of our own to ensure a smooth transfer.

You may take a minimum of eight (see "What to take for first year") to a maximum of 20 Camosun courses to transfer to UVic for this major. If you would like to complete the maximum of 20 courses at Camosun in 2 calendar years, you must take a minimum of 10 courses per year.
