The course times and descriptions on this site feed directly from the Class Roster (Fall and Spring) and the Courses of Study on a daily basis.  However, changes to courses times and fees listed on this site at the top of the various class pages take precedence over those listed in the Course and Time Roster.

Cornell Outdoor Education

Cornell Outdoor Education (COE) is part of the Physical Education Department and offers both credit and non-credit courses in a variety of outdoor related activities.  Courses may be added any time before the class starts, with no late enrollment fee. COE maintains its own drop deadlines (listed in the class pages on this site), enrollment and other policies. Questions about COE classes should be referred to Danielle Ford at or (607) 255-6183.


IMPORTANT: The Physical Education offices are temporarily closed due to University requirements. All communications should be sent by email.
