Physical Education Requirements

The College requires eight units of physical education and the successful completion of a swimming-proficiency test. The test includes entry into the water, a 10-minute swim demonstrating two strokes, one minute of treading water and two minutes of floating. For non-swimmers, successful completion of beginning swimming will fulfill the requirement. The physical education requirement must be completed by the end of junior year. Transfer students will receive credit toward the requirement from previous institutions after a review by the director of the department. Students with special needs should consult the director of physical education.
