Activity Class Information

Activity classes have the same programming as credit classes, but they are not taken for credit. 

Activity classes allow you to balance activity with your busy schedule, and create accountability with instructors and a group to help you stay consistently active. Assignments and attendance are not required as they are with credit classes.

Request to Enroll

Once you submit the Request to Enroll form, your registration is considered final. You will receive an email confirmation and transaction receipt. The course fee is charged to your UO billing account.

If the class is at capacity, you may email or visit an activity class during the first week of each term to request instructor approval to be added to the class.

Faculty, staff, and community members are welcome to register for activity classes. Rec Center membership or facility access is required in order to participate in activity classes held in the Rec. If you register on DuckWeb for a PE class, you will be charged all associated student fees. Be sure to use the above process for noncredit participation in PE activity classes. We will reach out to community members for course fee payment options.


To drop your activity class, email Refunds are issued according to the UO Office of the Registrar's refund schedule. All refunds incur a nonrefundable processing assessment of $15. No refunds will be issued if requested after the Sunday of week four each term.


Students of all abilities are welcome to participate in Physical Education courses. Students can work with the Accessible Education Center (AEC) and instructors for appropriate accommodations. The AEC can assist students in finding an aide or interpreter if needed to participate in PE courses. PE and Rec will waive the course fee for the aide. Contact Chantelle Russell for further information.


Activity classes cost $105.

Some classes such as scuba and outdoor pursuits require additional fees for gear, transportation, and certification. Activity classes are assessed a fee because they are not funded by tuition and general fees. Class fees cover the cost of instruction, equipment, administration, and facility maintenance.

Cost of attendance is the estimated cost to attend the UO for the academic year. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships provides estimates for cost of attendance information that goes beyond tuition and fees, and includes: living expenses (housing and food), books/supplies/equipment, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses.
