The Division of Biological Sciences welcomes transfer students. We offer a one-credit hour Transfer Interest Group (TRIG) class for transfer students to help them meet fellow biology majors and to learn about campus involvement, undergraduate research opportunities, and other campus resources.
Students from Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City, Moberly Area Community College, and Saint Louis Community College can earn a specially designed Associate of Arts (at MACC or SLCC) or Associate of Science (at MCC) degree with an emphasis in biology from that institution and then transfer to MU to complete either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Biological Sciences with 63 or fewer additional hours of coursework at MU. Mizzou has developed specific articulation agreements and transfer guides.
MU’s Office of Admissions offers transfer course equivalency information for students from other institutions in Missouri. Students from out-of-state schools must have courses evaluated on an individual basis by the MU Office of Admissions.
The Office of Student Financial Aid has information on scholarships available for transfer students.
