Does UNCW offer a military waiver for PED 101?
Yes. Upon verification of Basic or Recruit Training, UNCW can waive the student’s physical education requirement of PED 101. Documentation such as the DD-214 should indicate that the student was in good standing at the time of separation. This documentation of military service should be submitted to the office of the School of Health & Applied Human Sciences located in Trask Coliseum 156 (Phone: 910.962.4268). Many military veterans also receive elective credit hours for Basic Training, depending on their transcripts. In the event that PED 101 is waived, the 2 credit hours are not awarded -- students are merely exempt from taking the class. However, in the event that the American Council on Education recommends that veterans receive elective credit hours, the hours will go towards the 124 semester hours needed to graduate.
