The application process involves two parts:

  • Second, you are making a specific application to the M.S. degree program in Kinesiology. This part of the process is handled by the Kinesiology Graduate Program. Note that you will need to submit two (2) sets of transcripts, one to the Office of Admissions (official) and one to the Kinesiology Graduate Program (only the department’s may be a copy).
