Applying for Graduation

Students can now apply online through Admissions and Records.

However, we strongly suggest you complete steps 1-5 below before applying through Admissions and Records.

  1. Identify your option advisor by clicking here;
  2. Obtain a current electronic copy of your DPR in PDF format that reflects the year you first declared Kinesiology as your major;
  3. Obtain and complete your Kinesiology evaluation form
    1. Scroll down this page and select the form that corresponds to your kinesiology option & catalog year;
  4. Send your advisor an email and include a copy of your current DPR (PDF format) and your Kinesiology Option Evaluation Form (PDF format) as complete as possible (make sure you use the one that is for your option and your catalog year). If changes are required, your advisor will let you know. If your form is complete, your advisor will email you the signed form;
  5. Once your advisor has signed the Kinesiology Evaluation Form, go to this website and upload the form.

A $10 late fee will be assessed if your application is late. Applying late may also prevent you from receiving graduating senior priority registration during your last semester. If you do not get priority registration for your last semester, the Department of Kinesiology cannot guarantee your enrollment in the courses you need to graduate on time.
