PE Classes Master Syllabus


  1. Students must attend at least 80% of the total class meetings each term to pass the class and receive credit.
    1. MW or UH Classes: 1 credit (50 minutes): each student is allowed a maximum of four absences, regardless of the reason for the absence.
    2. Once-a-week classes and “11 session” classes: each student is allowed a maximum of two absences, regardless of the reason for the absence.
  2. Absences Defined: Missing a class due to any of the following reasons constitutes an absence: late registration; illness—with or without a physician's statement; injury; wedding or funeral; Outdoor Education, Camp Adventure, Athletic Department, Club Sports event or travel; skipping; or any other reason that keeps you from attending class. If you must miss a number of classes due to any of the above reasons, we encourage you to take the class non-credit if space is available.
  3. Injury and Illness: During weeks 1–8, you must withdraw from the class if illness or injury causes, or will cause, you to exceed the number of allowed absences. Instructors are not required to arrange for make-ups. If injured during weeks 9–10, you may be able to arrange an incomplete grade and write up a contract for completion with your instructor, or you may petition to withdraw through the Registrar's Office.


Students enrolled for credit will be evaluated in the following components:

  • physical—skill and ability
  • knowledge—written
  • affective—behavioral.

Your instructor will provide more specific grading information.

Non-Credit Enrollment

Non-credit enrollment is available in activity classes. Students can sign up for activity classes in the SRC Service Center.
