Summer Advising – Athletics Requirement
Bates students must fulfill a physical education requirement. The requirement is two Physical Education Activity course/credits (the equivalent of two semesters) and the Physical Education Department encourages students to complete this requirement in their first year.
The Department of Athletics oversees the PE requirement and offers a range of courses each semester that fulfill one of the two required courses. Students who play Bates sponsored club and varsity sports will receive a course credit for each semester that they play.
