HMC students must complete three semester-long Physical Education (PE) courses to graduate. One of these three is a required physical fitness course for which students register in their first year; the other two are electives. No unit credit is given for these courses. Students must register for these courses through the Harvey Mudd College Registrar’s Office.
Physical Fitness Course. Information about physical fitness; testing of physical strengths and weaknesses; aerobic training; development of the skills for a lifelong physical fitness program; introduction of students to the CMS PE/Athletic program, faculty, and facilities. The Harvey Mudd College Registrar distributes a list of approved fitness courses to first-year students each semester. Season-long participation in an intercollegiate or club sports team approved by the CMS Athletic Department counts for the physical fitness course requirement, but the season-long participation should occur in the student’s first year.
Elective Courses. Semester-long courses in activities such as tennis, badminton, golf, bicycling, self defense, aerobics, running programs, and weight training with free weights and machines. Fitness training with an associated ROTC program or completion of a physical education course at Pomona College also fulfills a PE elective requirement. One season-long participation in an approved intercollegiate or club sports team may count for the two required elective courses.
