Pre-Activity Screening for PED 101
As a part of PED 101, you will be required to participate in physical activity. It is strongly suggested that you visit a medical professional prior to the beginning of the course and obtain a physical. If you have not previously done so within 14 months of the start of class, and based upon information you will provide your Instructor (see below), you may be required to obtain a physical prior to being allowed to participate in class. Since participation is a mandatory part of the course, your failure to obtain a physical after being instructed to do so could result in being dropped from PED 101. Any restrictions placed on your participation following a physical, however, will not adversely affect your grade.
All PED 101 students must complete the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) the first week of classes, and prior to any physical activity participation.
Students answering “YES” to one or more of the seven questions are required to have a physical exam on file with the Student Health Center within the previous 14 months, and no later than within two weeks of the PAR-Q completion.
- The student and physician need to complete pages 4-6 of the Physical Examination/Medical History Form and be sure it is on file with the Student Health Center [(phone) 910.962.3280 | (fax) 910.962.4130 | Westside Hall]
- Any student who answers “YES” to one or more of the PAR-Q questions, and does not have a physical exam on file with the Student Health Center within the previous 14 months (and no later than the 2-week post-PAR-Q deadline) will be dropped from PED 101.
- Any student failing to follow these procedures will meet with his/her PED 101 Instructor to determine the most reasonable course of action, with consultation from the PED 101 Coordinator and SHAHS Director.
- If any changes in your health status occur throughout the semester, since the PAR-Q completion or physical exam, inform your Instructor immediately.
