Admission Requirements for the B.S. Exercise Science


Program Admission Requirements for the B.S. Exercise Science program at the Georgia State University Atlanta campus:

Students must apply to the B.S. Exercise Science program after completion of areas A-E and the following Area F courses: KH 2220, KH 2221, KH 2230, and KH 2231. A minimum of C+ on the first attempt (WF counts as an attempt) is required in each of the following classes: KH 2220, KH 2221, KH 2230, and KH 2231. Competitive applicants will have a “B-” or better in each of these courses.

To apply for the B.S. in Exercise Science, students must submit the application available on the CEHD website education.gsu.edu/admissions/undergraduate-admissions/. As part of the application, students will be required to upload a statement of purpose (must be no more than 1000 words in length) and include the following information: 1) educational and career objectives and how a degree in Exercise Science will aid you in achieving those goals, and 2) list of extracurricular activities, including jobs, volunteer work, student clubs/organizations, etc.

KH 2130, KH 2220, KH 2221, KH 2230, KH 2231, and KH 2520 may be attempted only once. A WF counts as an attempt. Transfer students who transfer these course(s) into Georgia State University may use the grades in the last attempted transferred course or they may attempt them (once) at Georgia State University.

Students can petition to use BIOL 2110K and BIOL 2120K in place of KH 2220, KH 2221, KH 2230, and KH 2231; however, a student must still receive a “C+” or higher in each course.
