*Not a baccalaureate degree program

Recreational and Intramural Services offers a variety of sports classes that can be taken for academic credit. At present, approximately fifty physical education class sections are offered each semester in such areas as fitness and conditioning, racquetball, tennis, and Hatha yoga. In addition, classes leading to certification as a lifeguard, water safety instructor, or high school coach may be taken for academic credit, as may wellness classes. The registration procedure for physical education classes that carry an ATH prefix is not different from that for any other academic course.

No more than 8 credits of Athletic activity coursework can count toward the credits required for graduation with a bachelor's degree.
