Admission for High School Students

Learn about the admission process for students applying directly from high school.

The School of Education and Human Development offers just one Direct Admit program - Kinesiology. Direct Admit means students are able to apply directly from high school using the Common Application. When applying, please be sure to select Kinesiology (School of Education and Human Development), not the College of Arts and Sciences.

Once enrolled, students take courses both in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the School of Education and Human Development. The Kinesiology major leads to a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) degree. The School of Education and Human Development also offers several Kinesiology graduate degrees should you wish to continue your studies.

Kinesiology refers to the study of movement and is a multifaceted field of study in which movement or physical activity is the intellectual focus. Learn more about the B.S.Ed. in Kinesiology here:
