*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.
