All students being admitted to the Exercise Science program in Spring 2019 will now be using the new UNM Course numbering system.

For the 120-hour degree, the Exercise Science program requires a 3.2 GPA, completion of BIOL 2210/2210L and current certification in First Aid, CPR and AED (obtained from HLED 1113 at UNM or an outside organization) for admission into the undergraduate program. Students must meet with Dr. Kravitz as part of the admission process. Students are required to complete PREREQs for all Exercise Science classes. To find a CPR/First Aid class from the American Heart Association CLICK HERE

Special Note: A grade of 'B-' or better is required for all PEP and PRPE courses in the program. A grade of 'C' or better (not C-) is required for each General Education course towards the 120-hour degree.

ADVISEMENT NOTES: Once accepted into the College of Education, students must meet with their Exercise Science advisor (Dr. Kravitz) each semester to remove the Academic Hold for registration.

A student earning below a "B-" in a PEP course may repeat the class. If a student does not receive a "B-" or better on the second attempt the student will be removed from the Exercise Science program.

GRADUATION NOTE: All students must complete a ‘graduation check’ the semester PRIOR to graduation. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

All students going onto graduate programs are encourage to look up the prereqs for these future career pathes and complete the classes along †he way to finishing the B.S. Degree in Exercise Science.
