The Division of Kinesiology academic advisors provide advising for students currently in the major as well as prospective students. Our academic advisors can assist with the following:

  • Understanding admission requirements
  • General information on the program
  • Selecting a track
  • Schedule planning
  • Career and graduate school exploration
  • Selecting electives
  • Course evaluations
  • Registration assistance

While in the Kinesiology BS program, students must periodically schedule meetings with their assigned academic advisor to review degree requirements and their program of study. Students are responsible for reviewing their MyKnightAudit to assure that they are following their personal program of study. Students can access their degree audits in MyUCF.
