*Must take BOTH semesters to receive credit at Virginia Tech.
**In order to receive transfer credit, PHY 241 + PHY 242 must include, in addition to Mechanics, Gravitation, Oscillations, and Electromagnetism, three modules of material, each module representing at least 15% of either course; which modules are: Heat/Thermodynamics/Kinetic Theory; Mechanical and Sound Waves; Geometrical Optics and Wave Properties of Light. In lieu of this coverage, the physics department has available web-based study modules to prepare students for diagnostic exams covering any of the modules. Adequate performance on the diagnostic(s) will activate transfer credit of PHY 241 + 242 for PHYS 2305 + 2306.

1 Students must complete both Math 163 and 270 (271) to receive credit for MATH 1525-6. If only Math 163 is completed, students will receive credit only for MATH 1015 or free elective and have to take both MATH 1525-6 at Virginia Tech.
2 Because 173 and 273 contain material not covered in 1205, students who took 1205 at Virginia Tech may not be prepared for either 174 or 274 (ask the particular community college for a detailed syllabus & compare it with your 1205 assignment sheet).
