Students are required to complete a minimum of 128 semester hours of course work to qualify for graduation. All candidates who wish to be licensed to teach must formally apply for admission to teacher education during the spring semester of the sophomore year and be interviewed by designated faculty members in physical education prior to enrolling in restricted course work. Students must earn a minimum of a C grade in each major and professional course and maintain a 2.5 grade point average.

Students must talk with their advisors during the freshman year to determine the best area for the second course of study, as their decision may impact the selection of general study courses.
