Summer 2018 Biology Boot Camp


The Biology Boot Camp is a one-week program, August 12 through 17, designed to help incoming students have a smooth transition to the expectations of college prior to the start of the fall semester.  The program is open to UMKC students enrolled in Biol 108 General Biology I or Biol 109 General Biology II in fall semester.

Students will:

  • Get a jump start on biology course content
  • Meet other freshmen in their major
  • Learn strategies and tips to succeed in college
  • Meet faculty and upperclassmen in the department
  • Learn how to navigate the campus
