Wellness: Courses

Wellness Education is divided into 8 disciplines and offers more than 550 courses during the academic year.

Students are required to take two wellness classes before they graduate, but there is no limit to the number of classes students can take. A nominal fee is charged for courses. The Institute covers the first two classes up to $200.00 in total course fees. Student accounts are credited automatically after add/drop ends. Please contact Student Financial Services directly with any questions.

Registration, add/drop and withdraw dates for Wellness courses coincide with the dates determined by the Office of the Registrar, as all academic classes do as well.

Important Note: Students cannot receive wellness credit for participation in any Better Me Faculty/Staff courses and/or programs.
