Physics and Astronomy Registration

Changes Effective Fall 2024

Beginning Fall 2024 term, Physics & Astronomy introductory courses will separate the lectures and the labs into two distinct courses. 

Students completing the courses will now be able to repeat only one portion of the course should a repeat be necessary.

DegreeWorks Issue

For some students on catalog years 2023-2024 and prior, DegreeWorks has presented some challenges for older catalog years as a change to move one required class to two required classes does not work well retroactively. For this reason, an "or" statement is visible instead of an "and" statement. We understand the confusion this presents. Our DegreeWorks team is exploring any and every option to update this for a clearer understanding.

Course Repeats

If you took a PHY or AST course prior to Fall 2024 and you need to repeat it, you will need to register for both the lecture and lab. See this crosswalk.
