Students enrolled in the Air Force ROTC program or veterans who have active duty service may substitute that experience for all or part of their general education physical activity requirement. One semester of ROTC can substitute for one (1 credit) activity course requirement, up to a maximum of two credits. This does not include UCFH 120 . See the kinesiology department chair for details. Students with physical disabilities may consult the kinesiology department chair for special consideration. Students may select any combination of one-credit courses to complete their general education physical activity requirement; however, one course MUST be a non-varsity physical activity. An activity course may not be taken twice to fulfill this requirement. If PHED 138  (Water Safety Instructor Course, 2 credits) is passed, the successful completion of UCFH 120  will fulfill the student’s physical activity requirement. Varsity athletes may substitute only one varsity sport for one activity course requirement; however, a varsity sport may be taken no more than twice. Students in the Marching Band may substitute MUSC 1739  or MUSC 3739  for one activity course requirement. Students completing DANC 100 , DANC 101 , DANC 102 , DANC 201 , DANC 202 , DANC 211 , DANC 212 , DANC 301 , or DANC 302  may substitute one of those dance courses for only one physical activity credit. This does not include UCFH 120 . All varsity sports are graded pass/fail.

Varsity Sports


All varsity sports are graded pass/fail and may be repeated once, for a maximum of 2 credits. Only one instance of varsity sports can be applied towards the general education physical activity requirement.
