(1*) The College of Engineering recommends students make a conservative decision about accepting advanced placement credits in math. Students who earn a 4 or 5 on the Calculus AB exam are recommended to still begin in MATH 151. Students who earn a 5 on the Calculus BC exam are recommended to begin in MATH 151 or MATH 152.

(2*) CHEM: Biomedical engineering, chemical engineering and materials science and engineering degrees require a two semester sequence of chemistry courses consisting of CHEM 119 or CHEM 107-117 and CHEM 120; students interested in other majors in the College of Engineering are encouraged to complete CHEM 107/117. Either CHEM 107/117 or CHEM 119 will satisfy the prerequisite for CHEM 120. Students considering medical school after completion of their baccalaureate are encouraged to take both CHEM 119 and CHEM 120.

(3*) Students should only accept credit for PHYS 206 if they earned an AP score of 5 and only after completion of MATH 151 (Exception: Students interested in mechanical engineering are not encouraged to accept AP credits for PHYS 206).

(4*) Students should only accept credit for PHYS 207 if they earned an AP score of 5 and only after completion of MATH 151 and PHYS 206 (Exception: Students interested in electrical, computer or nuclear engineering are not encouraged to accept AP credit for PHYS 207).
