Physical Education Policies

PE Courses

Physical education activity classes are scheduled for either a semester (12 weeks) or a term (6 weeks). A semester course counts as 4 credits while a term course counts as 2. All classes are graded on a Credit/Non-Credit basis: 

  • CR - Credit for course completed satisfactorily.
  • NC - No Credit. The student has not completed the course satisfactorily. Inadequate familiarity with the content of the course or excessive absences may result in an NC grade.

Courses may be taken only once for credit. Students who have already received credit for the semester version of a given class (e.g., Semester Golf) are not eligible to receive credit for its term version (Term Golf). However, students who have already earned credit for the term version of a class are eligible to receive credit for its semester version. Partial credit is not awarded for partial completion of a class. (top)


Registration for Physical Education courses occurs online, via Banner Self Service. Students are able to enroll in one (1) class online and place themselves on one (1) waitlist. Students may join a second class by attending the first session. If space is available, the instructor will add them to the roster. For more information on Registration, click here(top)

Auditor Registration

Medical Restrictions

Students with medical restrictions must meet with the College Health Services Staff to be placed on the Medical Restrictions List. Assistance in choosing appropriate courses is available from the Department Health Services Liaison. In cases where appropriate activities are not available in the curriculum, a Modified Independent Program may be arranged individually through the Physical Education Liaison. No student is exempt from the physical education requirement. (top)
