Wellness Courses

Wellness courses are offered as general studies electives for many academic programs.  Wellness offerings are designed as self-help courses that provide insight to behavior modification and methods to better understand health-fitness, personal wellness and nutrition.  All students who enroll in these courses will be able to apply the knowledge they learn to their daily routines.  All wellness courses are taught by faculty from the Exercise Science Program and are supported by the Pitney Bowes Foundation Wellness Center.

How to Sign Up

All Wellness Courses are 3 credits each and are full semester courses. Most of the courses are transferable as physical education credits to select four year institutions. Registration for these courses is no different than for any other academic course taken here at the college.

Blended Courses with Extended Studies

At times Wellness Courses will be offered collaboratively with the non-credit division. Blended courses allow for both credit and non-credit students to attend courses offered in the academic division of the college. All students enrolled in these courses will be expected to adhere to the attendance policies assigned by the instructor. Non-credit students are not required to participate in any of the final evaluations for these courses and will not receive a grade.

You must register for blended courses at our Records Office located on the East Campus. For more information contact Midge King at 203.857.3337
