Summer Course Approval

Approvals should be obtained before you enroll in a course.

   

Please drop off all required materials with:

Joanna Chisolm
Faculty Assistant
504A Altschul
Office hours: 9:00 - 5:00 M-F
212-854-3628
jchisolm@barnard.edu

Joanna will contact you when your course has been approved and signed by the appropriate Professor.

Please check all the items below before you drop off you materials.

For all students:

  • Is this course at a 4 year college?

For Premed Physics:

  • Does the summer last at least 5 weeks (6 is preferred)?
  • Are the course hours equivalent to a Barnard Semester (at least 35 hours of lecture, plus a lab)?
  •  Is this a correct course for premeds? ("Physics for Poets" is not.)

For Physics Majors:

  • Does the summer semester last at least 6 weeks?
  • Is the course calculus based?
  • Does the course have at least 35 hours of lecture and 30 hours of lab?

For the Barnard Science Requirement:

  • Does the summer semester last at least 6 weeks?
  • Does the course have at least 35 hours of lecture and 36 hours of lab? If not, you may have to take the lab course at Barnard during the school year.
  • Have you checked that the course content is appropriate? will it fit in with a second term taken somewhere else? (NOTE: A one-semester introductory Astronomy course, e.g. "Overview of the Universe" will NOT easily fit with our two-semester sequence).

For ALL of the above, do you have documentation (program descriptions with dates and class hours, course descriptions)? Please have it ready with the Barnard Summer School form to show us.
