Promotion to Professional Sequence is the process by which a
student in the exercise science (ES) program gets promoted to the
upper division and approved for taking upper-level courses
(300-400) in his/her major.
All students must be approved to take advanced courses in ES regardless of whether they wish to earn a BS in exercise science, apply to the pre-physical therapy program, to the BS/MS in exercise and nutrition or to the BS/MPH. Promotion to Professional Sequence is competitive and limited to 120 students.
Note: In past years, students who are missing only one or two prerequisite courses or those who have less than the required 2.5 prerequisite GPA have been granted acceptance to the professional sequence on a probationary basis if space is available.
Students are expected to submit their application by the last Friday in January of the typical sophomore year. The earliest time PPS applications can be filed is Jan. 1. The Department of Exercise and Nutrition Sciences will not accept any applications prior to the posting of official fall grades.
The deadline for applications to be filed is Jan. 31 of each academic year. You can submit an application after the deadline but it will be marked as late and will only be considered if space is available.
Please use the instructional guide to assist with completing the application and for more information regarding the application. Many of your questions will be answered here, so please read this document thoroughly.
Students are also encouraged to attend one of the Application Information Sessions held during the first week of classes in January.
