Physical Education (PE) Requirements

All students (with the exceptions noted herein) will be required to take one PE activity course and the Health & Wellness class (PHED 1100). The Health & Wellness class is a graduation requirement for all students except those graduating in the nursing program. The Health & Wellness requirement applies even if students are exempt from PE activity courses. Students must select one PE activity course to fulfill the physical education requirement.

Students exempting their activity requirement through military or professional service are still required to successfully complete PHED 1100 as a graduation requirement. Veterans or service members completing Basic Training may receive one hour of PE activity course credit. The DD 214 must be provided to the Registrar’s Office as documentation before the determination of credit can be awarded.

Students who have a disability that prevents participation in PE activity classes should contact the Accommodation & Disability Services office for information on a possible waiver of the activity requirements.

Students who have earned an associate or baccalaureate degree from another regionally accredited institution will be considered to have met all physical education requirements for graduation from ABAC.
