Physical Education Timeline for SCUBA Return

The Athletics & Recreation Department (A&R) continues to ramp up operations, programming and physical education course offerings that were negatively impacted, due to sustained campus closures caused by the Covid-19 pandemic and other weather/environmentally-related stressors.

In collaboration with the newly appointed Diving Safety Officer (DSO), Environmental Health & Safety partners (EH&S) and Diving Control Board members (DCB), A&R has begun the recruiting process for PE SCUBA instructors. On-campus candidate finalists' interviews will take place during the month of March. Once the selected instructor or instructors have completed their university and departmental on-boarding, course development and logistical planning, dive locker inspections and maintenance will need to be completed prior to resuming PE SCUBA courses. PE SCUBA courses will resume Fall Quarter of 2023.

A&R appreciates your patience while we continue to work toward resuming our PE SCUBA courses beginning the '23 -'24 academic year. As the process continues, updates for the most current status of the SCUBA program will be posted at We look forward to seeing you soon!
