To be eligible for admission, students must demonstrate the following pre-requisites:
Minimum GPA requirements:
  • 2.5 for Exercise Science
  • 3.0 for Pre-OT and Pre-PT
  • Caveat – if students do not meet minimum GPA requirements at time of application but are mathematically able to reach the minimum standards at the end of the spring semester in which they apply, they may apply. Students are responsible for submitting an updated transcript to demonstrate minimum GPA.

  • APK 1000 (may be in progress at time of application)
  • BSC 2085 with Lab
  • BSC 2086 with Lab (may be in progress at time of application)
  • Caveat – if students do not meet minimum grade requirements for any course at time of application but are in-progress of retaking a course at time of application, they may apply. Students are responsible for submitting an updated transcript to demonstrate they have attained the minimum grade of a “C.”
