Latest Announcements


We have moved!!! MCB advising is now located in 200 Burill Hall. The main advising office is accessible through room 101 Burrill Hall, the MCB Learning Center. Once inside you will take the stairs or elevator to the 2nd floor and check-in with our receptionist.


With the start of spring registration on Oct 29th MCB advisors will be holding express advising times beginning on Friday, Oct 26th. Please see the Google calendar below for exact times.

Express advising is for short, i.e. no longer than 10 minute, questions and answers. If we can't help you resolve your issue within that amount of time, then you are more than welcome to schedule a full half hour advising appointment.


The next curriculum change period: Jan 7 - Jan 29, 2019. If you are interested in declaring an MCB major please make an appointment with an advisor. Current biology majors do not need to see an MCB advisor first. They may simply fill out this form.
