Description

Physical education offers students the opportunity to improve physical fitness and conditioning through a variety of physical education classes. Students of all ages and fitness levels can take these classes to improve overall fitness, health, and wellness and ultimately increase their quality of life. Students will come away from physical education classes with knowledge about the value and benefits of physical fitness and the skills to design a personal fitness program to achieve lifelong wellness.

PCC does not provide medical coverage. It is strongly recommended that students have medical coverage and a recent physical exam before they participate in physical education courses. Students who require classroom accommodations should notify the physical education instructor and the Disability Services (DS). DS works with students to identify and ensure reasonable accommodations in PCC classes and programs.

The Oregon State System of Higher Education and the systems in other states vary in their physical education requirements. Many physical education classes fulfill degree requirements at PCC or other institutions and colleges, or may transfer as elective credit. Students should check with their PCC program advisor or with the institution to which they plan to transfer. For information on the Fitness Technology Certificates and AAS degree, see Fitness Technology in the catalog.
