Once I’ve submitted the Request for Additional Credit form, my supporting materials, and a transcript for transfer credit, do I need to do anything else?

For most departments, that’s all you need to do. However, transfer credit in Physics requires another step: if the Department gives preliminary approval to your materials, you must prove your knowledge by taking the 8.01 (mechanics) and/or 8.02 (electricity & magnetism) Validation Exams during Orientation. If you pass the exam you will receive the transfer credit.
