Graduate school admission question (easy question)
For admission into some grad school programs they say you require this..

A full or half credit in one biological or life science course with a grade of B or 75% or 3.0/4 or 8/12 or higher.

Is there a list of courses that fit that category? Or is it just Bio, Chem, Physics or does it include enviro sci or psych?

You should ask the school you're applying to. A life sci at Mac doesn't mean it's a Life Sci in all other schools.

Usually life science courses are courses dealing with life systems, like biology and biochemistry. A lot of the stuff on that "Life Sciences I Course List" are not considered to be actually life sciences (e.g. physics and chemistry are physical sciences).

Definitely double check with the school if you are not sure.
