The Physics Department offers courses for transfer students in physics, prerequisite courses for engineering students, and general education courses in physical and life sciences. The department faculty and staff are dedicated to providing excellent instruction and academic support to meet the diverse needs of our students.
Students who wish to transfer to a four-year institution should contact the particular institution to determine their specific requirements. Most NVC Physics courses are UC- and CSU-transferrable, but individual institutions vary in their transfer requirements and articulation agreements with NVC physics courses.
Physics course credits earned at NVC can be applied toward an Associate in Science Degree (AS) in Natural Science and an Associate in Science Degree for Transfer (AS-T) in Physics.
