In just three weeks, students can complete an intro to biology lab-only course during Intersession (May 21 to June 7) and then take the next level during the eight-week Summer Session. CLC created this lab-only course for reverse transfer students who have already taken a lecture-based course and need to quickly complete the lab requirement.
