Grade Requirements for the Physics Degree

Effective Spring 2011, all classes taken for the Physics major, including math supporting courses, require a minimum grade of "C" in order to qualify for the degree. If the "C" minimum grade is not achieved, the course must be repeated. If the course is a prerequisite for a higher-level course, the student may not enroll in the higher-level course until the prerequisite course is repeated and a "C" minimum grade is achieved. In addition, no course can be taken more than twice.
The rules apply to all programs leading to a physics degree (Major, Honors Major, 3/2 Physics/Engineering, and Materials Physics).
