- Academic Mailing: the third, and final, official mailing from the Office of the Dean. This mailing has information on relevant graduation requirements, grades, exploring the curriculum, placement and credit, and more. The mailing has a particularly extensive explanation of placement for Mathematics since it is a discipline which requires action on your part in order to enroll in a math course at any time--not just your first year--at Swarthmore. The packet refers to the Math Placement Exam which can be downloaded from here: http://math.swarthmore.edu/2008_math_placement_exam.pdf.
