Fitness for Life General Education

This requirement is fulfilled by taking HPX 177 Fitness for Life, a combination of one 1.0 credit lecture class and one 1.0 credit activity class. The lecture and activity classes must be taken during the same semester and both classes have to be passed in order to receive credit for either the lecture or the activity.  Students are given the same grade for both the lecture and activity courses, calculated by averaging the student’s performance in the lecture and activity. 

Splitting the course is possible and available to students who transfer in partial activity credit or for WestConn students who have fulfilled varsity team requirements. WestConn students fulfilling varsity team requirements shall receive .5 semester hours of physical activity credit, but only a maximum of one credit is acceptable for general education activity credit.   Students requesting to split the course must present an unofficial transcript documenting the earned transfer/varsity sport participation credit before receiving permission to split for Fitness for Life. 

Because of the physical demands of activity courses offered at WestConn, students are strongly urged to have a physical examination prior to registering for these courses. Since part-time students are not covered by university accident insurance, part-time students are strongly urged to carry accident insurance.
