Exercise Physiology


The Department of Kinesiology application process for a M.S and Ph.D. with a specialization in Exercise Physiology.

Application Process:

The application deadline for Fall admission is January 15th of each calendar year for students who want to be considered for graduate assistantships. Applications will be accepted after the January 15th deadline; however, candidates are at a competitive disadvantage after this time. In addition, applications for Spring admission will be considered, however, it is unlikely that graduate assistantship funding will be available at this time.

Application Materials to be Completed and Submitted Directly to The Graduate School:

Students are encouraged to follow The Graduate School Application Guidelines for the most up to date requirements located at The Graduate School webpage.
