PHYS 121 — NEW Course for Fall 2018 (4/16)

New:

A new course, Physics 121, Foundations of Astronomy, has added to the Fall 2018 schedule. Taught by Professor Lombardi, this course will be offered MWF 9:00-9:50 am.

This course is described as “A study of the Earth and heavenly bodies, their observed characteristics and motions, and the theories that account for them. The course is designed to give students an understanding of the tools and fundamental physical concepts of astronomy. Topics covered include celestial timekeeping, gravity, orbits, light, the birth and evolution of stars, black holes and other compact objects, dark matter, dark energy, and the big bang theory. Use is made of the Wible Planetarium and the Newton Observatory telescopes. Students must participate in an evening observing session at some point during the semester. Corequisite: MATH*157, MATH*159, or equivalent (placement into MATH 160 is sufficient). NOTE: Students may receive credit for only one course from among PHYS*020, PHYS*121, and PHYS*129. Distribution Requirements; QR, SP.”

For students who matriculated in Spring 2016 or before and who are subject to the Divisional Distribution requirements, this course does NOT fulfill the Natural Science lab requirement.

Transcript Freeze — May 8 through May 15

Effective May 8, transcript requests cannot be processed until spring semester grades are posted. This applies to ALL requests — from current students, pending graduates, and alumni.

If you have a deadline date before or near May 8, 2018, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) prior to May 8; otherwise it will be held until May 15, 2018. Students wishing to have spring semester grades should indicate “Hold for Current Semester Grades” when ordering. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on May 15.

Seniors graduating in May 2018 should select “Hold for Current Semester Grades & Degree Posted” to make sure their degree is listed on the transcript. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on May 15.

Students who are facing academic suspension or dismissal will have their transcripts held until after the process concludes, on or around May 24.

Students who are not graduating seniors may continue to order transcripts as usual, but should be aware that delivery will be delayed during this period. Please plan ahead!!
