In order to receive the Associate in Arts and Sciences or Associate in General Studies degrees, it is necessary to obtain three physical education activity credits. These credits can be included in the 90 credits needed for the degrees. (Students planning to transfer to other institutions should check their requirements.)
Beginning courses are prerequisites to intermediate courses, and intermediate courses are prerequisites to advanced courses. Advanced placement may be made by the instructor. An activity at the same level may not be repeated for credit. Most activities require extra fees.
The physical education requirements may be waived only with approval of the physical education department chairman. Students may request waivers only if there is a medical problem or a student has previous military service.
