Biology acceleration is intended for students who wish to complete their Honors Biology course in the summer (following their 8th grade year). Students must meet all pre-requisites for Honors Biology in order to be eligible to accelerate. Successful completion will make students eligible for Honors Chemistry as long as they meet all other pre-requisites.
The approved CCAC Courses are BIO110 or BIO151 (each is 4 credits). Students need to consult the CCAC program of studies and syllabi for each course to determine which is a better fit for their own individual needs or which they are eligible to enroll in. Please note that CCAC may not allow students to enroll in certain courses based on their pre-requisites or other requirements. Hybrid courses may include up to 50% online instruction. Fully online courses are not permitted for purposes of acceleration.
