  • Activity PE Credit Form

    Are you missing an Activity PE credit on your transcript? Let your school counselor know by filling out this form.

     Important Notes

    • It is the responsibilty of your coach to turn the rosters of the players into the Athletic Director for approval of the Activity PE credit. 
    • The Activity PE is NOT automatically applied to your transcript. There is a process. 
    • Filling out this form does not guarantee that the Activity PE will be added. This form is a means of information gathering to assist your school counselor in properly placing you in your classes. The school counseling office will compare this list against the rosters provided to our offices for verification of the Activity PE credit.
