Is direct transfer admission an option for the Kinesiology major?

December 11, 2018

Direct transfer admission refers to admission to the Kinesiology major in the College of Education concurrent with admission to Michigan State University.  Kinesiology majors must have an overall 2.0 GPA and complete a five-course core with a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each class by the time they reach junior status (56 credits). Transfer students with more than 42 credits will be considered for direct admission if they have completed equivalent course work for four of the core courses, as follows:

  • College Algebra (MTH 103), College Algebra and Trigonometry (MTH 116), Survey of Calculus I (MTH 124) OR Calculus I (MTH 132)
  • General Chemistry (CEM 141)
  • Applied Human Anatomy (KIN 216) or Human Gross Anatomy (ANTR 350)
  • Introductory Physiology (PSL 250)
