- 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;

If your application is late, a $10 late fee will be assessed. 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.
