Spring 2018

There will be no labs in the first week of the semester. The labs will start on January 16, 2018.

Questions on registration and waitlists
  • You have to be enrolled concurrently with the lecture. For example, if you are planning to take the PHYS 151L lab you have to be enrolled in the PHYS 151 lecture. If you are currently waitlisted for the lecture you cannot enroll in the lab.
  • Not all lab sections are full. Please enroll in the available sections first before requesting to be waitlisted for another section.
  • If you did not get into the lab or if you can only make it to a specific section please go to the first lab of the section that you would like to attend. If availabilty allows the TA might be able to give you an override. This decision is within the discretion of the TA and should be seen as an exception.
  • If you cannot register for the lab and are under the assumption that you fulfill all prerequisites (e.g., this can happen when you are transferring from another school) please contact our department secretary Karen Mertz:
