    Enrolled students will receive an email with instructions for watching a course orientation video prior to the first day of class. An Orientation Q&A session (recommended, but not required) will be held on Thursday, August 29 at 7:30 pm in RCK Schwartz Auditorium. PHYS 1101 allows considerable flexibility, but students must plan to come to the Learning and Testing Centers (RCK 280 and 250) regularly. The Centers are open most afternoons and evenings, beginning at 11:15 am on the first day of class. Time-management skills and self-motivation are crucial to success. Freshmen are not allowed to enroll due to difficulty level and enrollment capacity.

    Required co-enrollment in PHYS 1110. The waitlist for this class can be found at www.physics.cornell.edu/waitlist. The Physics Department will assist you if you are unable to resolve a conflict between your Physics course and another required course for your degree; however, if changing your first-year writing seminar, PE class, or another elective is possible and will resolve the conflict, then you should resolve the conflict on your own rather than seeking an accommodation from Physics. Engineering students should refer to pre-enrollment directions at https://www.engineering.cornell.edu/students/undergraduate-students/advising/course-enrollment.
