Application to the exercise science program is a two-step process.
All prerequisite courses must be completed to be eligible for admission to the upper division, including 1-credit labs. The general education requirements do not have to be completed until you are ready to graduate.

The 12-credit internship is completed in the spring semester of your senior year. We have more than 200 affiliation sites across the country (including Arizona, Colorado and California). You’ll work with our clinical education director to secure a site in the fall semester of your senior year but it is never too early to begin screening sites. You may choose an internship with a non-affiliated site, but we will need to process an affiliation agreement first. This can take up to several months and should be started in the spring or summer preceding your senior year.
