    • You will need to either pass an Anatomy Placement Test (APT) with a 70% or earn a “P” in NAS 2 or earn a “C” or higher in BIO 101.
    • If you have already taken BIO 141 and earned “C“ or higher and wish to retake the course, you do not need to take the APT.
    • Students who do not wish to test may choose to enroll directly into NAS 2 or BIO 101 instead of taking the APT.
