For a course to count as a pre-requisite for a more advanced course, students need to have received a grade of C or higher.
Students must get a least a C in all courses that count toward the neural science major, except for Introduction to Neural Science, for which they must receive at least a B-.
Students who receive a 4 or higher on the AP Calculus and/or Statistics exam(s) can use that to fulfill the equivalent neural science requirement as long as the AP credits have been processed by the College of Arts and Science and appear on the student's transcript. Students must discuss this with their neural science advisor to get the credits appropriately allocated in Albert.
Transfer courses may not exceed one-half of the required coursework for the major. Transfer students should contact a neural science advisor as soon as they are admitted to the program to start the process of getting their transfer credits evaluated for suitability towards the major. Neural science can be evaluated by the department, but courses toward the foundational science requirements (Calulus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics) must be evaluated by the relevant NYU departments.
Neural Science majors are required to take General Physics II. General Physics I is the pre-requisite for General Physics II. The only automatic exception to this will be for students who have AP Physics C Mechanics credit, which is equivalent to Physics I. This credit must have been processed by the College of Arts and Science and appear on the student's transcript. If students don't have AP credit but want to petition to take only General Physics II and not General Physics I, they must bring a copy of their transcript to a meeting with the Physics II instructor, so that they can review past math and science preparation and overall GPA. The Physics faculty can refuse permission to anyone they believe is unqualified for this exemption.
