Fall 2014 Physical Education Information

  1. All students must complete four (4) blocks of Physical Education to fulfill requirements for graduation. Physical Education blocks are in addition to the 32 courses required for graduation and do not receive academic credit.
  2. All students must report to class during the first week to be informed of attendance regulations. Failure to report could result in student receiving an "FA" for the class. Students will receive a maximum of 1 Physical Education (P.E.) block per activity, even those meeting for a full semester.
  3. As the P.E. requirement is designed to promote diversity of participation, a student receiving a block of P.E. for participation in intercollegiate athletics must enroll in P.E. activities that are different from his/her intercollegiate sport.
  4. You may select only 2 blocks of P.E. during the Course Request Period. Additional blocks may be added during Schedule Adjustment Period and Add/Drop.
  5. All P.E. courses will be permanently listed on your transcript - including failures.
  6. "W" grades cannot be used for P.E. classes, per Faculty legislation 4/29/94.
  7. Beginning July 1, 2009:
  • Participants in intercollegiate sports will receive credit for one block of physical education for each season they play a varsity sport; ROTC students will receive credit for one block of physical education for each year they remain in the program.
