With the creation of new course ES 146 Sustainable Earth (4 credit hours), a Gen Ed approved course, the Department of Physics and Earth Science would like to propose that the Advanced Placement Exam for Environmental Science with a minimum score of 3 be equivalent to ES 146 and that this be added to our current Advanced Placement Examinations table in the catalog.
