Admission Requirements

Admission is competitive and limited to 50 students. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and students may be admitted for fall, spring, and summer semesters. Admitted out-of-state and international students are charged in-state tuition rates for this online program.

Admission requirements are as follows:

  • Cumulative baccalaureate GPA of 3.0 or better on a 4.0 scale.
  • Undergraduate degree in physical education, coaching, sport management, education, or related field. Applicants with relevant experience that hold other degrees will also be considered.
  • The GRE is NOT required.

A 3.0 is needed to be considered for full acceptance into the program. Applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0 will be considered for conditional acceptance and will have to complete 6 graduate credit hours with grades of at least B to be considered for full standing. Meeting these criteria does not guarantee acceptance.
