NOVA-MU Physics Course Equivalencies

NOTES:
  • PHYS 900 is an unspecified elective that counts toward the 120 hours required for graduation. It does not, however, fulfill Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirements.
  • Courses with an "NS" designation, including PHYS 901, count toward Marymount's Liberal Arts Core requirement for a Natural Science with Lab.

*If more than one course equivalent to PSC 103 is transferred, then the additional course would transfer as PHYS 900.
**Students can transfer only one of NOVA's PHY 201 and PHY 231, and similarly only one of PHY 202 and PHY 232 can be transferred.
