Freshman Pre-professional Status

During the sophomore year (for exercise science) students who desire to move into the professional program must complete and submit an application. Pre-professional students may not enroll in HNES restricted courses.
Students selected into the professional programs are listed as having professional status and are eligible to enroll in previously restricted courses.
All transfer students (from other institutions or from other programs on
