Physical Education Intercollegiate Sports

  
  •  

    PEAI * All - Intercollegiate Sports and Skills Courses


    To receive academic credit for athletics involvement the student athlete must have participated on a varsity or sub-varsity team.  Credit can be earned once per sport (2 maximum) by non-PETP students toward satisfcation of the four (4) semester-hour General Education Program requirements in Physical Education.  Physical Education Teacher Preparation (PETP) students may use PEAI skill credit for only one sport, one time as a selective or core (educational Gymnastics) in the category their sport falls under (individual/dual, team).  Swimmers, however, will not be able to use intercollegiate swimming for the Aquatics core.  The one (1) credit Water Safety Instruction (WSI) or Lifeguard Training is the core requirement for Aquatics.

    In addition, the student-athlete must participate in one full season prior to registering for PEAI credit.  This credit does not count toward meeting the academic requirements of full-time status or satisfactory academic progress.  Graded on a Pass/Fail basis.
