Eligibility Requirements for Internal Transfer

  • To be eligible to transfer from the BSc Major in Exercise Science into the BSc Honours in Exercise Science program, students must: 1) complete all courses in Stage I of the major, 2) have an assessment GPA of at least 3.30 for all program and elective courses, 3) have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.30 for all program and elective courses, and 4) have letter grades of C or above in all program and elective courses.
  • To be eligible to transfer from the BSc Major in Exercise Science into the BSc in Athletic Therapy (BScAT) or the BSc in Kinesiology and Clinical Exercise Physiology, students must complete all courses in Stage I of the major with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00.
  • Students who fail to meet the internal transfer requirements from the major to the honours, Athletic Therapy, or Kinesiology and Clinical Exercise Physiology program have two options. The first option is to remain in the major for the duration of their studies. The second option is to repeat some courses in Stage I of the major until the transfer requirements have been met.

Stage Eligibility Requirements

  • The major, honours, and Kinesiology and Clinical Exercise Physiology (KCEP) programs are composed of three stages, whereas the Athletic Therapy (AT) program has four stages. To be eligible to register for courses in the next stage of a given program, students must complete all of the courses in a previous stage of their program. Please refer to the course maps that follow summarizing the courses students are required to take in each stage of the respective programs.
  • Students who fail to complete all the science prerequisites by the end of Stage II are prevented from progressing to the next stage of their program. In addition, it is strongly recommended that these students contact their academic advisor. The science prerequisite courses include BIOL 201; CHEM 205, CHEM 206; MATH 203, MATH 205; PHYS 204, PHYS 205, PHYS 206, PHYS 224, PHYS 225, PHYS 226 or their equivalents. Please note that PHYS 204 and PHYS 224 or their equivalents must be taken before registering for EXCI 351.
