Welcome

The Cornell University Physical Education Department is proud to offer one of the largest and most diverse Physical Culture Programs in the Ivy League. Over 100 courses are available, taught by experienced and gifted instructors. Thousands of students, staff, and area residents attend these classes every semester.

Most Cornell students pre-register for courses online prior to the semester. However, many individuals register during the add/drop period at the beginning of the semester. Non-students are allowed to register in person in the Physical Education office in 305 Helen Newman Hall on the first day of classes for each semester. Questions about PE classes should be referred to Pat Ackley at par2@cornell.edu or (607) 255-4286.

Cornell Outdoor Education (COE) classes have different deadlines and enrollment policies. Please refer to the COE site for specifics. Questions about COE classes should be referred to Danielle Ford at dmf238@cornell.edu or (607) 255-6183.
