Override requests

The Human Biology & Pre-Health advisors do not provide overrides for any courses. Students requesting an override must consult the department for that particular course. A list of Natural Science override request forms can be found on the Physiology Department page.

Department contact information can also be found in MSU's Student Information System under the Classes tile. After selecting Class Search & Enroll on the right, search for and select the course you are trying to enroll into. The contact information will appear on the right-side of the page.

Human Biology & Pre-Health Advisors

The Human Biology & Pre-Health Advisors meet with students who have declared the Human Biology major and advise them for both degree/graduation planning and pre-health requirements and planning. They also meet with pre-health students who have declared any major other than Human Biology and advise them on pre-health requirements and planning only.
