Kinesiology Advising

When students declare the Kinesiology Major (either by entering the University or changing their major) their official major title will be "Kinesiology-Undeclared."

When students declare an Athletic Training Major they automatically enter the pre-professional program. In either case, students will be assigned an adviser from the UARC (University Advising Resource Center). This adviser is equipped to help the student choose courses to begin studying in the Kinesiology Major. Students should meet with their assigned adviser from the UARC at least once per semester.

After students are accepted into the Kinesiology Program they must choose an emphasis area (Exercise & Fitness, Healthcare-Science or Strength & Conditioning).

Then the students will be assigned a faculty adviser. Students are expected to schedule a meeting with their faculty adviser each semester, approximately one week prior to their registration date. The student should contact the faculty adviser via email and provide approximately three times to meet.

When students arrive at the meeting with the advisor they should bring:

  • An updated STAR report
  • Their 4-year plan (that was developed in Orientation to Kinesiology, 77-121)
  • A list of courses they plan to take the following semester

Most advising meetings last approximately 30 minutes.
