PHYS-215 is a one-credit conversion course for those who have previously taken the algebra-based PHYS-115 (or equivalent) and passed it with a grade of "C" or better, and now need to convert to the equivalent of the calculus PHYS-207 course.

Different schools handle this sort of conversion course differently. At Western Michigan University, students enrolled in PHYS-215 do all the work required for PHYS-207.

If you're a Pessimist: Then you have to do 4 credits of work, but only get 1 credit.

If you're an Optimist: Then you get to do 4 credits of work, but only have to pay for 1 credit.

Please see Dr. Phil or the Physics Undergraduate Advisor (check in 1120 Everett) for more details on the requirements for enrolling in PHYS-215, if you think you are eligible.


If you have passed the PHYS-116 laboratory (or equivalent), you do not have to take the PHYS-208 laboratory, and repeat the lab.
