Transfer and AP Credit

Good grades on AP exams can be used towards department credit. IB courses generally do not receive department credit but students with a grade of 7 on the advanced physics may be considered for credit.  

Requests for transfer credits are handled by the department's undergraduate office in Bausch & Lomb 211. When possible, students should obtain approval of transfer credit before taking a course elsewhere, in order to be certain that transfer credit will be awarded.

See the transfer and AP credit page for more information.  

Pre-Law

While there are not set courses required for law school entry, students interested in pursuing law should visit our pre-law page and speak to an advisor about how best to prepare for law school.
