Skagit Valley College recognizes physical education as an integral part of a student’s education. After fulfilling the necessary physical education requirements, students will have gained knowledge and understanding of the value of fitness and healthy lifestyle choices and will incorporate regular physical activity into their daily life.
The Skagit Valley College Physical Education Department offers a comprehensive curriculum including a variety of activity classes and lecture based health, wellness, and first aid classes.
All students pursuing an AA-DTA transfer degree must take Wellness for Life and two activity classes. Most technical students are required to take first aid and safety. PE credits will transfer to all four-year colleges and universities and will be reviewed by their credit evaluators for fulfillment of graduation requirements per that school’s regulations.
