Uppers and seniors who want to take a one-course reduction in Physical Education during their upper and/or senior years select this course.

Uppers and seniors who want to take a one-course reduction in Physical Education during their upper and/or senior years select this course. Athletes who elect to take the Physical Education Option cannot request free formats for any reason, including participation in on- or off-campus training. Credit for physical education for individual off-campus programs is determined on an annual basis. Students should consult with the program director or coordinator. If an off-campus program does not receive preapproval for a program of regular, supervised physical activity by the PE Department, then no PE credit will be given for that term. Consequently, students in these programs are required to participate in the PE program at Exeter for the other two terms on campus.
