Entering the STEM Fields

Back to information for pre-major advisors

For help guiding students to the correct course placement, consult with your students about their high school background and current interests. Some questions to ask might include:

  • The last course (year and level) that they took math, biology, chemistry, physics A.P. courses or exams (5 is highest) or S.A.T.II exams (800 is highest) and their approximate score.
  • What they plan to do with the sciences (i.e., health professionals with humanities major, science major, etc.)

You can also refer to the chart below to help inform their course selection.
