Departmental Advising

Students majoring in CBN (Cell Biology and Neuroscience) are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned advisor frequently, at least once each semester.

Advisors perform a number of very useful functions, which include responding to various questions concerning the major, assisting students in course selection, serving as a sounding board for the student's post-graduation plans, and certifying students for graduation, etc.

Assignment of students to an advisor is based on the first letter of the student's last name, as follows:

All rising sophomores wishing to major in CBN are encouraged to take Fundamentals of Neurobiology (01:146:245) and Fundamentals of Cell and Developmental Biology (01:146:270) during their sophomore year at Rutgers. Please keep in mind that both 01:146:245 and 01:146:270 are offered 3 times a year (fall, spring and summer). While it may be possible to complete the Option A of the CBN major in 4 years, if you decide to take the two Fundamentals courses in your junior year, we strongly encourage you to discuss your plans with a CBN advisor in advance. 

 Undergraduate students who wish to declare a major in Cell Biology and Neuroscience are strongly encouraged to consult with a CBN faculty advisor before submitting the "Major and Minor Declaration/Change Form". This form is available online at mymajor.sas.rutgers.edu.  Please contact a CBN advisor in advance for an appointment concerning the requirements of the CBN major.  More information is available on the SAS Office of Academic Services web page “Completion of a Major and Minor”.  General information about academic requirements can be found at the SAS Office of Academic Services web site.

Advisors should be contacted in advance for an appointment.
