Transfer Coursework
Lewis does not accept transfer science courses that are general education courses - any course accepted must be considered equivalent to the corresponding Lewis course. We do not accept any major courses from the City Colleges of Chicago.

Policies
Biology majors and minors may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class. The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for our general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.
