I have had a course similar to PHED 1205 at another school. Can I transfer that credit to CSU?

Probably. However, PHED 1205 is unusual in that it includes a physical activity lab in conjunction with the Wellness “lecture”. Courses that are lecture only do not transfer as equivalent to PHED 1205. If your course included a lecture and fitness component please consult your advisor to petition the acceptance of the transfer credit.

What activity courses do you offer for credit?

We offer a variety of course selections for the PEDS credit including weight training, jogging, kickboxing, and yoga (just to name a few). Click on the following link to see a detailed course listing.
