Policies

Advanced Placement, Proficiency Exam, and Transfer Credit Policy

In order to meet the learning objectives for the physics and engineering science majors and minors, students that receive credit through advanced placement, proficiency exam, or transfer credit may be required to complete additional coursework. See the Chair of Physics & Engineering for details.

College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Physics Policy

High school students may receive credit for Conceptual Physics (PHEN 101) at Muskingum University if they score a 3 or better on the AP Physics B test and provide acceptable evidence (see Note 1) of their laboratory work to the Chair of the Department of Physics & Engineering.

High school students may receive credit for Classical Physics I (PHEN 121) at Muskingum University if they score a 3 or better on the AP Physics C Mechanics test and provide acceptable evidence (see Note 1) of their laboratory work. In order to fulfill the requirements for the Physics & Engineering Science majors, prospective majors may have additional expectations placed on them.  See the Chair of the Department of Physics & Engineering for details.

High school students may receive credit for Classical Physics II (PHEN 122) at Muskingum University if they score a 3 or better on the AP Physics C Electricity & Magnetism test and provide acceptable evidence (see Note 1) of their laboratory work. In order to fulfill the requirements for the Physics & Engineering Science majors, prospective majors may have additional expectations placed on them.  See the Chair of the Department of Physics & Engineering for details.

Note 1:
Evidence of laboratory work should include the following items and be submitted directly to the Chair of the Department of Physics & Engineering at Muskingum University.
1.  The AP Physics Instructor should submit a letter using the school’s letterhead that lists the labs that have been completed by the student.
2.  The student should submit a lab notebook or a portfolio of lab reports.
3.  In the absence of such evidence, the student will be expected to complete the recitation (if applicable) and laboratory components of the course.  See the Chair of the Department of Physics & Engineering for details.
