110, 115, 117, 125 or 230 specifically.

Have you passed a college-level Physics course elsewhere? If so, an exemption may be possible if the course was calculus based and had a lab component. Contact the current Chair of Physics to see if a course you have taken qualifies.

Are you interested in taking a physics course over the summer in order to exempt out of a physics requirement? If so it is important that you clear the course with the Chair of Physics before you take it. Again, contact the Chair of Physics.

The Physics Department no longer offers exemption exams.
