NOTE: The ATHTR Degree Audit takes precedence over the Recommended Academic Plan for graduation requirements.

NOTE: Students are admitted to the ATHTR major on a competitive, space-available basis. A minimum 3.0 GPA in the prescribed ATHTR courses (KINES 135, 202, 231 and 233) is required, in addition to other requirements. Admission to the major is not guaranteed despite successful completion of the prerequisites.

ADVISING NOTES: LIMITATION ON THE NUMBER OF TRANSFER COURSES USED FOR KINES 300-LEVEL CORE:  Effective FA15, out of the KINES 300-level core courses (KINES 321, 341, 345, 350, 360 and 384), only up to two courses (6 credits) can be transferred in and used towards graduation for the Kinesiology or Athletic Training Majors.

LIMITATIONS ON SOURCE AND TIME FOR CREDIT ACQUISITION:  In accordance with Policy 83-80.5, the Department of Kinesiology requires at least 24 credits of prescribed coursework in the major to be completed at the location or in the college or program where the degree is earned.  Distance Education or World Campus courses may not be counted toward this 24 credit minimum.  The 24 credits include the capstone course in the major:  KINES 495B for the Movement Science Option; KINES 495F for the Athletic Training Major; and KINES 495C for the Exercise Science Option.
