Enrollment in PED classes follows the same procedures as all
CMU classes; students register online.
If the class is closed, please follow these suggestions:
- Add yourself to the waitlist of the course. Follow the links on the registration site to
be added. If a class does not have a waitlist, contact the department secretary
- Attend the first week of classes if you are on the wait list
or if you plan to attend that class so your attendance grade is not affected.
- Constantly check the web for open sections or call the PES
office at #2026. People will drop
classes and create openings.
For second 8-week classes, a bump card must be obtained from
the secretary. Stop in to Rose 194A.
Your grade will be
based on the knowledge and skills you learn about a particular sport or
activity as well as your attendance and participation. Because each class in
this program is participation oriented, your attendance will have a large
impact on your grade. If you miss 30% of the class for whatever reason, you
will not pass the class. Your instructor
will have more specific information regarding the grading policy, incomplete
and deferred grades, as well as Credit/No Credit grading.
Some classes require you to meet off campus. You are responsible for the travel and your
safety to and from that location. If you need to make arrangements, contact
Extreme participation policy:
Some classes within the PED department require a more
intense form of activity or have a higher risk of injury. Students who take these classes must be aware
of the risk and participate within their abilities. Students are responsible for any medical costs related to accidental injuries while participating in these classes.
Because of the cost structure of the university and of the
PED program, many PED classes have fees that students must pay to cover costs
not covered by student tuition. These fees cover certifications, the use and
replacement of specific equipment, and also the services from support staff
required to offer the course (i.e. lifeguards, bowling attendant). Specific
amounts can be found when registering for the course.
Injuries during participation:
If a student is injured during class, and is not severe,
- Students may contact Student Health Services Primary Care
Suite at 774-6591 or go to Foust 104 for assistance between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30
- If the injured person is unable to transport him or herself
for treatment, phone CMU Police at 774-3081 for on-site assistance. Faculty and
staff members should NOT attempt to transport the injured student.
CMU does not carry any type of insurance coverage for students in the event of accidental injury.
Adaptations and Modifications:
If you are unable to complete or are worried about registering for a course because of your abilities or disabilities or an injury, we will do everything we can to accommodate your individual situation. Contact the program coordinator for more information.
