Upon completion of the placement exams, some students will be placed into Math and Physics preparatory courses and/or invited to enroll in a Chemistry preparatory course over the summer. Successful completion of the summer prep courses will positively impact your course placement in MATH, PHYS, and/or CHEM for the fall term. These zero credit courses are offered free of charge (excluding some potential costs for course materials) and will run for 5 weeks starting in mid-July. Each course is administered online in Blackboard Learn and can be completed at your own pace prior to their close date in late August.
Below is a list of various summer prep course offerings:
MATH 049- This course is equivalent to MATH 105. For traditional Engineering students, successful completion of MATH 049 will place you into MATH 116 in the fall term. For Construction Management and Engineering Technology students, successful completion of MATH 049 will place you into MATH 110 in the fall term.
MATH 050- This course is equivalent to MATH 110. Successful completion of MATH 050 will place you into MATH 121 in the fall term.
PHYS 050- This course is equivalent to PHYS 100. Successful completion of PHYS 050 will place you into PHYS 101 in the winter or spring terms (depending on math placement).
CHEM 050- This course is equivalent to CHEM 111. Successful completion of CHEM 050 will place you into CHEM 101 in the fall term.
To see which courses you are enrolled in, or invited to enroll in, please log into Drexel One. Under the Academics tab, you will see a Placement channel.
