Requirements:

Degree requirements include the successful completion of a swimming proficiency test and four physical education activity courses, Physical Education (PE) 101 through 215.  Students may not repeat a course they have already passed.  Students who have completed a 200-level course (e.g., varsity swimming) may not register for a corresponding 100-level course (e.g., beginning swimming, aerobic swimming). Student-athletes may use up to two terms of a varsity sport toward this requirement, up to a maximum of three total terms for varsity participation. All students may accumulate a maximum of six credits from 100- and 200-level courses toward degree requirements. Credits taken in excess of these limits will be treated as repeats of the earliest unrepeated credit of this kind.

No students are exempt from the swimming proficiency test unless they receive a medical excuse from the University physician. A student who fails to pass the proficiency test will be placed in Fundamental Swimming (PE 101 ). PE 101  will satisfy one of the four activity courses required for a degree.

The Head Athletic Trainer, in collaboration with the University physician, will review medical histories and determine whether a student is capable of participating in regular courses or should be placed in PE 102 , (Therapeutic Exercise).

It is highly recommended that students complete their PE requirement by the end of junior year.

Skills Courses: PE 101-195

Intercollegiate Courses: PE 200-225
