Physical Education

Physical Education

Health and Physical Education (HPR) is one of the many disciplines in which the humanities department at EACC offers a variety of courses.

Many students take physical activity courses from the humanities department because they find them fun and energizing. They enjoy the physical and mental benefits of participating in physical activity while also earning college credit. Students do not have to be working toward a degree to take physical activity or health classes.

For more information on HPR classes consult the EACC class schedule or contact the Associate Vice President for General Studies, Cathie Cline(

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I enroll?
You contact the staff in the Betty Jo Hodges building for more information. You can also learn more about enrolling in EACC on the college’s website: and click on admissions.

Who can take physical activity and health courses for credit at EACC?
Just about anybody! Students taking humanities courses do not have to be working toward a degree. Students must be at least 14 years of age, but there is no maximum age to take courses at EACC. We strongly believe that learning is a lifelong activity. In fact, seniors taking classes for credit can qualify for reduced tuition or no tuition. See the EACC website for more information.

Do all physical activity and health courses transfer to a four-year college or university?
Students should always check the catalog of the university or college to which they plan to transfer for transfer requirements, but in general, health and physical activity courses are considered transferable.

Do all physical activity or health courses count toward my degree?
Check the specific requirements of the degree you are seeking.

How many credit hours can I earn by taking a health or physical activity course?
Look at the fourth digit of the course number. For example, HPR 1811 counts for 1 credit hour; HPR 1732 counts for 2 credit hours; HPR 2203 counts for 3 credit hours.

Where can I find a schedule of HPR courses? Look at the EACC website: The current schedule is updated regularly.
