COVID-19 Updates: Fall Semester
Biology Advanced Placement Credit

If you received a 5 on the biology advanced placement exam Middlebury College will grant one college credit that will count toward the 36 units required for graduation. However, because the biology department does not offer any introductory course that is the equivalent of an AP biology course, advanced placement credit does not exempt a student from any of the published requirements for the major, minor, or joint majors, nor can it satisfy the college's distribution requirement. 

Placement Exams:

Effective Fall 2018, the Department of Biology no longer offers placement exams.  Except for transfer students who have already taken equivalent courses, it is not possible to bypass BIOL 140 or BIOL 145.
