Additional Notes

  • GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
  • US, IL, and US;IL are codes used to designate courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements.
  • W is the code used to designate courses that satisfy University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.

PROGRAM NOTES: Students may need to make schedule adjustments to accommodate special circumstances. However, the block scheduling plan (last 4 semesters) must be preserved.

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

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.
