Entry Recommendations:

It is expected that students will have at least 15 Level Physical Education credits (PED201, PER202, SPL201) or by HOLA approval. Students who also select FIT301 need to understand that some credits will overlap.  If you are taking PED301 and FIT301 please note that AS91498 and 91501, 8 credits total, are common to both courses, however, they can only count towards one of these courses as a University Entrance subject. Students taking this course are not able to enter into PER302.
