    I noticed the PE SOE notification on my portal over the past few days, however I have yet to receive the email they mentioned that was sent about the new SOE. Has everyone else received the email and if so, could you summarize what it said?

    Dear Candidate,

    We are writing to explain who must serve as the school official for the newly added Physical Education (PE) School Official Evaluation (SOE) you have likely noticed in you candidate portal. The SOE form on the portal states this form must be completed by your current PE teacher. The question for some then becomes, “What do I do if I am not currently taking PE?” The remainder of this message will address such concerns in case they apply to you.

    If you are not currently enrolled in a PE course or have graduated high school, you must have your most recent PE teacher listed on your high school transcript complete the SOE. Home schooled candidates or those who have NEVER taken PE in high school should contact their Candidate Fitness Assessment (CFA) administrator to complete the PE SOE.

    Under exigent circumstances, where both the appropriate official and the CFA administrator are unavailable, USMA will accept an SOE from a martial arts instructor, dance teacher, or similar instructor who a reasonable person would judge to be in a position to adequately assess your athleticism. Please note that a high school athletics coach may NOT submit the PE SOE UNLESS they are also your PE teacher.

    Also, please note that for the overwhelming majority of candidates the correct PE official is very clear. To avoid confusion and to preclude questions, these guidelines have been designed to be prescriptive and by and large, NOT open to interpretation or preference. If you have a situation that is legitimately not covered in these guidelines, you should contact your regional admissions team as listed in your portal. Before contacting them however, please ensure you have read and understood this guidance.
