The exercise science program has been a wonderful choice for me. The information focuses on the things I am eager to learn about and the instructors are very knowledgeable.
The admission criteria for the exercise science degree completion program includes a minimum cumulative and exercise science admission GPA of 2.75 and 25 completed hours. Students must complete an additional application to the School of Education in their first semester of enrollment. Please consult your Edwards Campus advisor for questions concerning admission requirements.
These courses must be taken prior to admission to the Exercise Science program at KU Edwards.
