To schedule a meeting with the Physics advisors or for information regarding the Physics major program, transferring course equivalency for physics courses, and repeat permission, email physics-ugadvisor. For all matters which are not directly related to the aforementioned topics, please address general inquiries directly to Ms. Kate Valerius. Appointments are scheduled Thursday afternoons 3-5 pm during the semester. Note that physics advisors deal ONLY with programmatic matters related to the physics major, including transfer credits. They do not deal with enrollment, outreach activities, or other issues. For questions concerning enrollment in a particular class/section first contact the instructor for the course. If no instructor is listed, email the Associate Chair; NOT the Physics department office. For general advising questions, please contact your college advisors.

Students requiring Physics Department approval to repeat a course must first fill out the departmental permission form, which can be obtained from the Physics Main Office (KEN 2150), and then schedule an appointment for the week before classes start. Note that students taking a course for the third time have lowest priority for registering for classes.
