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.


SP2022 PE class descriptions are now online.

IMPORTANT: SP 22 Pre-registration will be open to Undergraduates only. Graduates will be allowed to register beginning in January 2022 during the add/drop period.


Specific information concerning the way PE classes will be affected in FA21 and SP22 by Covid requirements will be listed in the course description as it becomes available.


NEW INFORMATION as of 8/11/21: As a result of COVID-19, Cornell’s swim test is currently waived as a graduation requirement for seniors who are graduating in fall 2021. While this decision may adjust during the academic year, there will be no swim test clinics this fall. First-year students will have the fee normally charged for delaying the swim test waived.


Deadlines for Physical Education and Outdoor Education are listed here:  Physical Education Course Deadlines supersede the University course drop deadline. Know your PE course drop deadline to avoid late fees.
