Requirements:

Degree requirements include the successful completion of four physical education activity courses, Physical Education (PE) 101 through 215. Students who have passed a 100-level skills course may not repeat it to raise the grade. 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.

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
