Department of Kinesiology

Clinical Health Professions Track

Program Description

The Clinical Health Professions Track incorporates the science prerequisites required of most physical therapy, occupational therapy, and physician's assistant graduate programs.

Admissions Requirements

All incoming freshmen and transfer students wishing to major in Exercise Science are initially classified as Exercise Science pre-majors (EXSS_Int). To be classified as an Exercise Science—CHP major, students must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Completion of 12 hours at UT Arlington
  • Completion of KINE 1400 with grade of B or better
  • Overall GPA of 3.00 and KINE GPA of 3.00

To ensure that all students develop a solid academic foundation, all first time, first-year freshman students (regardless of intended major) must obtain academic advising and clearance for registration from a University College academic adviser. After the first year, students should seek advisement from the Exercise Science Adviser in the Department of Kinesiology prior to each semester and summer sessions. Transfer students must seek academic advising from the Exercise Science Adviser in the Department of Kinesiology immediately.

Maintaining Major Status

Students accepted as Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science majors in the Department of Kinesiology must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 3.0 in the major or they will be placed on departmental probation. Students who are on departmental probation are not allowed to take additional Kinesiology courses unless approved by the Department Chair. If students are unable to make up the GPA deficiency in the semester immediately following the probation, they will lose status as a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science major. All courses taken to make up the GPA deficiency must be completed at UT Arlington. If students are able to make up the GPA deficiency in the semester immediately following their loss of major status, they can be reinstated as a major by making application to the Exercise Science Advisor when grades are posted. No courses on the Exercise Science—CHP Track degree plan may be taken as pass/fail.
