Once all materials have been submitted, Departmental faculty will make an admission decision. Admittance to the Kinesiology PhD program is contingent on an approved faculty member agreeing to serve as the student's research mentor.

Students who are admitted into the program will work with their faculty mentor(s) to work out their course of study and official program plan.
