Academic Planning Worksheet: Aquatic and Fishery Sciences

Preparation for your intended major is a factor in the review of your UW transfer application. Use this worksheet to help you plan for admission to your intended major and for UW general education requirements.


Department admission information

Although admission is open, students are strongly encouraged to prepare for the major before transfer by taking as many of the recommended courses below as possible. For the intro biology series, it is best to complete the entire sequence at one school if possible; otherwise it may not transfer directly.
