may pursue a two-year program of study in exercise science (non-teaching).
This two-year program is offered beginning in the junior year
and includes mandatory attendance during the summer session
(Session C which is 10 weeks) between the junior and senior years. Students can only enter
during Fall Semester of each year. Students proceed through
the program in a cohort and are required to complete all the
required courses each semester with a grade of "C-" or better in order to progress to the next semester. Students
who do not complete the requirements will be dismissed from
the program and may re-apply for the next cohort.
In addition to applying to the University, all students must
apply directly to the Exercise Science Program and meet the admission criteria for the program (see above document "Important Information for Exercise Science Students"). Students in each
program are in a cohort and must register for prescribed courses.
All course work in any given semester must be completed successfully
(C- or better) in order to progress to the next semester. Additionally,
students must maintain a grade point average of 2.5
or higher in both major courses and over all courses.
The School of Physical Education & Exercise Science
takes its role in preparing students in careers in teaching and
exercise science very seriously. Accepting
admission into a program includes accepting responsibility for
a high level of professional behavior.
