PAC Non-Credit

Physical Activity Course (PAC) Program

We understand that cost can often be a barrier to students taking PAC. To reduce the cost, encourage you to try new things and continue with activities you love or just stay active, PAC Non-Credit costs $150 for both resident and non-resident students (as compared to undergraduate resident base tuition + specialty course-specific fees, $220 for 2-credit course).

With this option, we intend to provide continued opportunities for you to learn new skills and stay physically active while at Oregon State.

  • Because of the progressive nature of instructional physical activity courses, if my lack of attendance or participation during the term impacts my ability to safely engage and participate in the course at any point during the term, I may be asked to sit and observe the course until I am able to safely and fully participate in the course.
  • Additionally, I will participate in a manner consistent to OSU’s Core Values of: Accountability, Diversity, Integrity, Respect, and Social Responsibility. If at any time I disregard or break one of the core values I may be asked to leave and not return to the class.
