How to Register
These classes are only available to currently registered SDSU students. You will register on my.SDSU for the specific class you would like to participate in. In addition, you will need to register with Mission Bay Aquatic Center and pay your lab fee. Information about how to enroll with MBAC and pay your lab fee will be sent to enrolled students through Canvas.
Schedule Adjustment Deadline
In order to register for the class, you must be added to the class by faculty by the Schedule Adjustment Deadline. Only those students enrolled through the university will be eligible to participate and receive credit for the class. If you are registered for a semester-long watersports class, you will not be dropped from the class for not attending/participating. It is your responsibility to drop the class before the Schedule Adjustment Deadline if you choose not to take the class. If you would like to change your grading basis from letter grade to credit/no credit, you must do so by the Schedule Adjustment Deadline.

Where to meet
The first two weeks of class will not meet at MBAC and will require completion of online modules assigned in Canvas. Your in-person classes will meet at Mission Bay Aquatic Center, located at 1001 Santa Clara Place, San Diego, CA 92109. Transportation to and from campus is not provided and you will need to find your own mode of transportation to class. More detailed information (including when classes begin meeting in-person) will be communicated through Canvas before your class begins.
There is a lab fee that must be paid to MBAC to participate and receive credit. The fee for each class can be found by selecting your class on the Semester Classes schedule page. This fee covers the cost of all required equipment for the class and instruction provided to you throughout the semester. The fee is due by the first in-person class meeting at MBAC and must be paid online. You will receive the link and instructions to pay your fee and register with MBAC on Canvas after the start of the semester.
