Advanced Placement in Physics

Advanced placement in physics is possible for students who have done advanced work in high school.

Many incoming students may have taken AP, IB, or A-Levels exams already, but this year we are asking all students interested in advanced placement into PHYS 114 (Introductory Electricity and Magnetism) or PHYS 200 (Modern Physics-Sophomore Level) to take Vassar’s Physics Placement Exam.

First-Year Physics Placement Exam

Date: August 25
Location: Sanders Physics room 201
Time: 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (lasting 1 hour)

Students are also required to bring documentation of AP exam scores, or IB grades, and their student ID.
