# Physics Readiness

For PHYS 220, all students who have achieved a C or better in MATH 226 (or an approved equivalent) are qualified to enroll.

For PHYS 111, all students who have achieved a C- or better in MATH 199 (or an approved equivalent) are qualified to enroll.

Students who have NOT satisfied the MATH 199 prerequisite may still qualify for PHYS 111 by completing the online mini-course Math Prep for College Physics. For Fall 2018, choose "Math for Physics 111 Fall 2018", course code VCM9K-34E3H.

The certificate of completion of the online mini-course requires 100% completion and will qualify you for admission into PHYS 111 for one year. If the certificate of completion will be older than one year on the first day of classes, then you must take the online mini-course again in order to be admitted to PHYS 111.

Students who have achieved a C- or better in MATH 226, MATH 227, or MATH 228 (or approved equivalents) will qualify for PHYS 111 without taking the online mini-course.

Proof of any one of the following AP exam scores will also qualify students for PHYS 111 without taking the online mini-course. Note that high-school courses alone do not qualify, whether they are AP courses or not.

Exam | Score (Minimum) |
---|---|

AP Calculus AB | 3 |

AP Calculus BC | 3 |

AP Calculus BC (AB Subscore) | 3 |

AP Physics 1 | 3 |

AP Physics 2 | 3 |

AP Physics C (Mechanics) | 3 |

AP Physics C (Electricity and Magnetism) | 3 |
