The Washington State University Catalog

Courses with the Phys Prefix

The online catalog includes the most recent changes to courses and degree requirements that have been approved by the Faculty Senate, including changes that are not yet effective. Courses showing two entries of the same number indicate that the course information is changing. The most recently approved version is shown first, followed by the older version, in gray, with its last-effective term preceding the course title. Courses shown in gray with only one entry of the course number are being discontinued.

ALL courses have a new effective date for FALL 2012 in order to integrate with WSU’s new student information system, zzusis.

NOTE: Prerequisite course information for spring 2012 and summer 2012 may be found in the PDF catalog online.
