Summer 2019 Classes

All members of the Cornell community and area residents are welcome to take summer Physical Education classes. Most students take summer Physical Education classes as non-credit classes.

Students who wish to take summer Physical Education classes for credit, or as a requirement for graduation, must obtain a letter of permission from the Physical Education Office and must take that letter to the Summer Continuing Education Office to register. Students taking a Summer Session PE course for credit only need to pay the University one credit tuition fee ($1460).

Students should complete registration at a time that does not interfere with the scheduled class time.  If necessary, you should attend the first class before completing registration.
