Physics

There is no placement test in physics. However, a recommendation for an appropriate introductory physics course sequence (based on each incoming student’s math and physics test scores) will be sent out by email to every new student in late August, before the fall term begins. These are recommendations; while the best approach is to consider the recommendation, consult a guide to selecting physics courses and visit the prospective introductory physics courses during course selection ("shopping") period before setting your schedule. Please contact the director of undergraduate studies (DUS) with any questions.
