Our Goals For Your Experience
Recreation classes are designed for the entire campus community at USD. Classes provide students with opportunities to learn new skills and activities, to increase physical strength and fitness, and to provide a balance in daily life. By introducing and encouraging these activities, we hope that you will develop a life-long interest in health and fitness.
The Campus Recreation department offers over 60 recreational classes each semester. You can choose from classes in the areas of:
Grading Criteria for Credit Classes
Undergraduate students may take classes for credit through the registrar for .5 units per semester. These classes are on a Pass/Fail criterion and this grade is based off of attendance. Missing more than four classes (unexcused absences) will result in an automatic fail unless the appropriate make-ups are made with instructor approval. Please note that arriving to class more than 15-mins late or leaving class more than 15-mins prior to the scheduled end time also counts as an unexcused absence.
An excused absence must be accompanied by a hard copy note from a doctor or other official personnel and delivered to either the listed instructor of the course or to the Recreation Programs Manager.
In addition, undergraduate, graduate students and employees of the University may sign up for classes (when space is available) on a non-credit basis through the Campus Recreation website. All non-credit classes have a required fee, and enrollment into the class will only be accepted after credit registration has ceased (usually the first day of the undergraduate semester).

How to Sign-Up
If you are an undergraduate student and would like to take a class for credit, you must use the registration portal with your MySanDiego account. Please use search code "EDRC" to find your class section and number. Attendance rules do apply to get a passing grade. The fee for the for-credit class will be billed through student accounts.
All non-credit participants, whether you are an undergraduate, graduate student, alumni (with pass), or staff, you may sign up for non-credit courses through the Campus Recreation Online Registration. All non-credit classes have a required fee. Fees are paid out of pocket for all non-credit classes (cash, check, or credit/debit cards).
Many of the recreation classes have additional fees. For students enrolling for-credit, these fees are charged to your student account (this excludes Mission Bay Aquatic Center (MBAC) courses- you must pay MBAC directly prior to taking a class). For students enrolling in non-credit recreation classes, you must pay the fee when signing up for the class at the Campus Recreation office or on the Campus Recreation website, and this fee is out of pocket.
