Students who have completed a first-year college curriculum involving
biology, some chemistry, and some math are eligible for our 5-credit Field
Ecology class after which they can take subsequent courses that summer.  In
any case, students can enroll with permission of instructor so they should
contact us if they have questions.  For more summer session details, see the
