2. Print a Degree Audit from LionPath for that major.
3. Print your current schedule ("course detail" format) from LionPath.
4. Print a transcript from LionPath.
5. Consider the recommended academic plans Biochemistry & Molecular Biology: Biochem | Molecular Cell Biology | Microbiology | Biotechnology:  General Option | Clinical Laboratory Science Option (PDF)
