Succeed in your Biology Courses

Did you know how many amazing resources there are to get help in your biology courses? The biology department has a study lab in the library that is staffed by ACC biology faculty to help you with your courses. This study lab room is stocked not only with instructors, but with models, microscopes, slides, and lab equipment. We can also help with scientific writing and lab reports! The main library desk also has these items if you’d like to check them out and study on your own for a couple of hours.

For those students in BIO111, our Student Success Center also has S.I. (Student Instructors) that meet throughout the week for help with that course.

These resources are entirely free and the schedules can be found online:

Biology students at ACC during labDid you know…?

The biology department has a course that covers basic human anatomy and physiology with a focus on wellness, nutrition, and disease prevention? It has lots of amazing labs like blood typing, EKGs, DNA fingerprinting, urinalysis, and even a CADAVER WORKSHOP!

It’s BIO104 Biology – A Human Approach.

There is a traditional version and a hybrid version. Both have a lab that meets once a week. There are two sections running Spring 2019:

BIO 104 101
Lecture: Monday/Wednesday, 9 – 10:15am
Lab: Wednesday, 10:30am – 12:20pm

BIO 104 301
Lecture: Online
Lab: Tuesday, 4 – 5:50pm

It’s a GT (guaranteed transfer) science class. This would be great for you if you are in one of our healthcare programs or need a transferable lecture/lab science course. Talk to your advisor about how to apply this class to your degree or certificate!
