Student Resources

Guidance for biology students

At SFA, we want you to make the most of your biology degree. That’s why we offer student advising resources every step of the way. Not sure whether you should focus on zoology, botany or evolutionary biology? Your advisor will help you choose the area of study that’s right for you. Have a specific career in mind? Your advisor will work with you to develop a program that aligns with your interests and goals.  

As you progress through your degree plan, your advisor will help you choose courses and electives, and they will help you track your progress toward your degree. In addition, your advisor will be available to answer questions and offer advice to ensure you make a smooth transition to college life.

Support, goal-setting and more

Your advisor does more than simply help you keep your degree plan on track. In addition to helping you monitor your progress and select classes, your advisor can help you:

  • Change your major or minor
  • Identify potential career paths that align with your interests
  • Build the study skills you need to succeed
  • Get back on track if you’re struggling academically
