Fall Semester: HESP 129, HESP 133, HESP 147, HESP 157, HESP 180, HESP 187

Spring Semester: HESP 129, HESP 133, HESP 135, HESP 177, HESP 180, HESP 187

Summer Sessions: HESP 129, HESP 133, HESP 135, HESP 157, HESP 180, HESP 187





Important notes:

Take HESP 129 as early as you possibly can. First semester freshmen if possible. Unless you're a transfer student. Then it should be the first thing you register for.

Take HESP 180 early-ish. Second semester freshman through first semester junior year.

Take HESP 133, 135, and 157 during your sophomore or junior years. Not when you're a freshman or senior.

Take HESP 147 and HESP 177 your junior or senior year. Don't even try to register as a freshman or sophomore.

You do NOT need to take HESP 147 and HESP 177 in any particular order; the only pre-req for both is HESP 129.

CHEM 25 is a pre-req for BIOL 81. CHEM 23 can be used as a pre-req, but it might require signatures.

If you've done Chemistry at Delta Community College, CHEM 1A (Delta) counts as CHEM 25 (Pacific) and CHEM 1B (Delta) counts as CHEM 27 (Pacific). Both classes fulfill the same GE (III-A) requirement. Use ROAR (link provided below) for other transfer articulations.

CHEM courses (23, 25, 27) are not open for general registration until right before classes begin (if there are any spaces left). CHEM 23 is for students whose placement test indicated a need for a more comprehensive chemistry background before entering CHEM 25.

CHEM 25 is offered in both fall and spring semesters and at least one summer session each year. CHEM 27 is only offered in the spring and one summer session. CHEM 23 is offered in the fall; to check spring and summer offerings, contact the administrative assistant.

For Chemistry questions, contact the administrative assistant, Susan McCann: smccann@pacific.edu

You may need to take MATH 41 prior to PHYS 23. Use the "Placement/Transfer Articulation Evaluation" tab in DegreeWorks to see.

Physics 23 and 25 are both offered every fall and spring.

For Physics questions, contact the administrative assistant, Kathy Giottonini: kgiottonini@pacific.edu

Ignore GEs 3A and 3C. Your required science classes will automatically fulfill those.

For Biology questions, contact the administrative assistant, Ginger Hudson: ghudson@pacific.edu

For GE 3B, take either MATH 35 (Elementary Statistical Inference; useful for grad school) or MATH 41 (Pre-calculus; if you need it as a physics pre-req).

For your GE 1A, take either PSYCH 17 or PSYCH 31.

For PT school you need to take PSYCH 17 and another PSYCH class ("psych of sport" or "exercise psych" will NOT count).

For PA school you need to take microbiology and an introductory sociology class ("sociology of sport" or some other sporty sports science version will NOT count).

For the B.A., if you plan on doing your language requirement at another institution, it must be pre-approved. Some community college courses are acceptable; others are not. No extension courses count.

If you're planning on summer classes, the courses that will be offered this coming summer ('18) are: HESP 45, 61, 129, 133, 135, 157, 180, and 187.

If you're a freshman or sophomore, your upperclassman(and woman) peers are often better resources than your professors. They know how to navigate the system very well because they're the ones who are actively navigating it. It's wise to ask them before you ask your professors.

If a class that you want to take fills up before you can register, immediately go to that department, speak with the administrative assistant in person (not through email), and get on the wait list. Then email the professor of that class and (very professionally) say that you are on the wait list. Don't ask the professor a question. Answering questions involves work and every professor is already overworked. Just politely, professionally, and briefly inform them that you're on the waitlist, are hopeful, and looking forward to the opportunity. (No questions.) Then show up on the first day of class, regardless of whether you're officially enrolled.
