Special College Admission Requirements


The goal of admission requirements for the Exercise Physiology concentration is to provide undergraduate students with a program of study with the highest possible standards. To achieve this goal, the admission policy is designed to identify those students most likely to succeed in kinesiology education. Academic performance for declaration of the Exercise Physiology concentration will be evaluated after the following criteria has been met:

  • completed 30 semester credit hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5
  • successfully completed the following or equivalent courses with a grade of “C-” or better:
    BIO 1233 Contemporary Biology I 3
      or BIO 1404 Biosciences I
    KIN 2303 Foundations of Kinesiology 3
    MAT 1023 College Algebra with Applications 3
      or MAT 1073 Algebra for Scientists and Engineers
    WRC 1013 Freshman Composition I (Q) 3

Applicants who have completed all of the above courses as equivalent transferable college credit with a grade of “C-” or better and have no UTSA coursework can declare an Exercise Physiology concentration if they:

  • meet all UTSA undergraduate admission requirements
  • have completed 30 semester credit hours

The minimum number of semester credit hours for this degree, including the Core Curriculum requirements, is 120, of which at least 39 must be at the upper-division level. All candidates seeking this degree must fulfill the Core Curriculum requirements and the degree requirements, which are listed below.

Additional UTSA Advising Notes


Things to do and remember upon Admission to UTSA:

Using this Transfer Advising Guide with UTSA


This Transfer Advising Guide represents UTSA’s degree plan and is subject to change at the university’s discretion. It is intended for advising purposes only so students know exactly which courses they can take at any of the colleges in the Alamo Colleges District and have the courses count towards degree requirements when they transfer to UTSA. It is highly recommended that students meet with their assigned academic advisor to review all graduation and transfer requirements listed in the Transfer Advising Guide.

The ultimate goal is to provide students with accurate information for transfer pathways while minimizing loss of credits in transfer. Students are encouraged to review UTSA’s requirements frequently.

Course numbers in italics are UTSA’s course numbers.

This Transfer Advising Guide is based upon The University of Texas at San Antonio’s 2017-2018 catalog and is subject to change.

The Alamo Colleges District Advising


Students are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor about courses and other educational concerns if they plan to pursue a two-year degree program, transfer to another college or university, or simply take a few selected courses. In addition to course and degree requirements, policies and procedures are subject to change; stay informed by meeting with an academic advisor regularly.

Many students who plan to transfer to a university are advised to fulfill the lower-division requirements for the university. With appropriate planning, your Alamo Colleges District team can help make the transfer experience a seamless process. It is the responsibility of all students to ensure that they take courses at the Alamo Colleges District that will be accepted by the senior institutions they wish to attend.
