TIPS FOR CHOOSING COURSES:
If balancing admission to Kinesiology with another program, note that any 24 credit hours, including BIOL 1410, BIOL 1412, and KPER 1500, is required. (Pending Senate approval in June 2017)
KPER 1200 and STAT 1000 (M) are additionally recommended in Year 1, prior to admission, as they are prerequisites for second year courses in the program.
Choose 6 credit hours of Science electives from the list above. Note that all listed courses include a lab. It is recommended to complete 6 credit hours of these courses in first year as a foundation for the lab work required in upper year courses.
24 credit hours of specific coursework. See the 2018/2019 Applicant Information Bulletin (when available).
Minimum Course Load:
University 1 may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis.
All admission requirements must be met by the end of April of the year of application.
Not required for admission. Will be met by KPER 2120 (W) in Year 2 of the program.
Not required for admission. Will be met by STAT 1000 (M), when completed.
2.00. Admission is competitive - a higher than minimum GPA is often required and varies each year depending on the applicant pool. A minimum grade of 'C' is required in BIOL 1410, BIOL 1412, and the KPER courses.
HIGH SCHOOL PREREQUISITES FOR UNIVERSITY-LEVEL COURSES:
Math 40S minimum 50% required.
Biology 40S is strongly recommended.
Additional 40S courses may be required, dependent upon the science electives you choose. See the Recommended Introductory Courses list for specific prerequisite information.
