How to Make an Appointment with a BMB Advisor

Enrollment Holds

To help ensure a timely graduation, as a BMB major you're required to meet with an advisor before you register for classes. The enrollment hold can be lifted by meeting with a BMB Peer Advisor during their office hours, or by scheduling an appointment with a BMB Academic Advisor. Holds won't be taken off immediately after your advising meeting, but will be lifted in time for your individual enrollment appointment.

Travel Award for BMB Undergraduates

The BMB department has a travel award available for undergraduates looking for financial assistance to attend a conference, meeting, workshop, etc. Students should complete an application, which is reviewed by the BMB Academic Affairs Committee, and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If funds are available, BMB will cover up to $500 in travel expenses with the expectation that a student's PI or other funding sources will match the amount that BMB contributes. Preference is given to seniors and students who present talks or posters at meetings.

Students working in a BMB lab should ask their PI for more information about how to apply for a travel award. Students working in labs outside of BMB should contact Amy Springer at @email to access the application.
