Prerequisite Permission for Principles of Biology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Microbiology

Non-degree students who have taken their prerequisites outside of Hunter will need to contact the course administrator and show the prerequisite work that they have done. The prerequisites are as follows:

  • BIOL 10000 (Principles of Biology I): Requires MATH500 (Pre-calculus) AND CHEM 10200 (General Chemistry I). Calculus can be taken in place of pre-calculus.
  • BIOL 10200 (Principles of Biology II): Requires BIOL 10000 (Principles of Biology I). Students who took Principles I outside of Hunter will also need to show that they've taken General Chemistry.
  • BIOL 12000 (Anatomy & Physiology I): Requires CHEM 10000 (General Chemistry Lecture) AND CHEM 10100 (General Chemistry Lab). Other General Chemistry courses (10200, 10400, 10600) can be taken in place, but both lecture and lab are required.
  • BIOL 12200 (Anatomy & Physiology II): Requires BIOL 12000 (Anatomy & Physiology I). Students who took A&P I outside of Hunter will also need to show that they've taken General Chemistry lecture & lab.
  • BIOL 23000 (Microbiology): Requires either BIOL 12000 (Anatomy & Physiology I) or both BIOL 10000 AND BIOL 10200 (Principles of Biology I & II), as well as General Chemistry (CHEM 10000 & 10100 or equivalent).

The course administrator for all courses listed above is Dr. Armin Lahiji ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ). Please include an unofficial pdf transcript showing the relevant courses, highlighted if possible.


Registering for BIOL 10000/10200

BIOL 10000/10200 at Hunter consists of three different components, Lecture, Lab and Recitation.  In order to ensure that all students in the same section are treated fairly, students must register for a pre-determined grouping of lecture, lab and recitation (you cannot mix-and-match).  Since the lab is the enrollment component, the lab is where you want to start when choosing a section.  The lab section numbers are designed to tell you which lecture and recitation will go with it: section 2L15 goes with lecture 2 (indicated by the first digit) and recitation 15 (indicated by the last two digits).

The same information is given by the numbering of the lecture and the recitation sections, so lecture 2-15 indicates that it is the evening lecture (2) and goes along with lab 2L15 and recitation 2R15.  If your priority is to ensure that you get a set of lecture, lab and recitation that have the morning lecture, you can look for any of the sections that start with a 1, and then pick the lab and recitation times that work for you.  Please remember that you must do the set of three indicated by the section numbers, so you should look carefully at the times for all three components before you select which section(s) you want.

In short:




Lecture time
1 for morning, 2 for evening

Specific component - for lecture, L for lab, R for rec. Set of -/L/R must be taken together

Lab/Recitation number Numbered 1-30 Pairs meet at the same time (13/14, 21/22, etc.)
