Guidelines for Acceptance to a Physics & Astronomy Department Major

In order to ensure that students are on a successful academic trajectory, it is recommended that students who have not earned at least a C average in both Classical Physics I and II should not declare a major in the Physics & Astronomy Department. Students who have not achieved this minimum grade guideline but who still seek acceptance to a major in one of the programs in the Physics & Astronomy Department must meet with and receive approval from the Department Chair.
