Physics 161L, 162L, and 163L are the only D-courses in the Physics & Astronomy Deptartment. To register for one of these courses, you must either
- Be a Physics/Astronomy major
- Have permission from the professor teaching the course
If you satisfy either of these requirements, go to the undergraduate
office (SGM 407) to get your D-clearance. You must also register
for the lab session associate with the course. The clearance
for the lab is entered at the same time as for the course.
The prerequisite course for Physics 125aL and 135aL is Math108 or higher. Unfortunately, the registration computer is unable to differentiate between courses which are not exactly Math108.
If you have taken a Math course which is equivalent or higher than Math108, either call the undergraduate office (740.1140) or walk in (SGM407) and a prerequisite waiver can be entered for you.
Physics/Astronomy majors must see their assigned advisors every semester before registering.
If you have seen your advisor, bring your signed schedule of courses to the undergraduate office (SGM407) and the advisement hold will be lifted. Alternatively, your advisor can contact us directly.
