Undergraduate Courses

Physical Activities (1 each)

F,S
A maximum of three units can be earned toward graduation in each activity area. To earn these three units, courses may be repeated at the same level, or more than one level, as long as the student's skill level is commensurate with that of the class (the instructor will make the determination).

The level of the course is indicated in the course title. All elementary level classes assume either no or limited prior experience and are recommended for students wishing to develop or improve skill in that area. All intermediate/advanced activity courses require as a prerequisite either: the elementary level course of that activity, previous experience which places the student at that level (subject to assessment of instructor), or consent of the instructor. Any activity course that does not specify a level in the title is designed to accommodate all skill levels.

If students are injured while participating in a physical activity class, they are not covered by any university insurance policy. Each student is responsible for obtaining her or his own insurance policy through a private insurance agency or through the student insurance plan of the Associated Students.
