Botany Student Handbook
The Botany and support courses needed for a major or minor/BIS in Botany are given in the Requirements section of this Handbook. To help you plan your program of study and monitor your progress toward degree completion, the Botany Department has prepared a collection of advising sheets. In order to use the right sheet, you need to know your catalog year. You will also need a Graduation Evaluation (a.k.a. Grad Eval). (FYI: the information that is on a Grad Eval) The following advising sheets are available for you to download in PDF format. You will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open the files.

You can go to the WSU catalog site to access the catalog for your year. You have six years from your catalog year to complete your program of study.
You can declare your major or minor in Botany by coming to the department office in Science Lab 402M. We strongly encourage you meet with the Botany Department chair when you enter a program of study in Botany. At this initial meeting, your degree progress will be checked, you'll be given a suggested timetable for taking future courses, and you will be assigned to an advisor. You should check the list of faculty prior to this meeting to see which faculty member most closely matches your interests in Botany.
When you have completed or are near completion of your Botany course work, you need to be cleared for graduation. At this time, you need to meet with the Botany Department chair. Be sure to bring a copy of your Grad Eval. Once you have had this meeting, you still need to apply for graduation with the Graduation Department in the Student Services Center, room 136.
You can find additional advisement information at the WSU Academic Advisement Center.
