Admission Requirements

The following materials should be submitted to the UALR Graduate School when applying to the program:

  • Undergraduate transcript(s). Applicants are expected to have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited university. A 3.0 grade point average is generally expected.
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores. Applicants are required to take the GRE General Test resulting in a minimum score at or above the 50th percentile.
  • Reference letters. Applicants should obtain three letters of reference from college professors or individuals familiar with their academic work. Applicants should ask each writer of a reference letter to place the letter in an envelope, seal it, and sign across the seal. Applicants should collect the sealed reference letters and forward them to the UALR Graduate School.
  • Letter of intent. Each applicant must submit a letter of intent describing the field or specialty within Health, Human Performance, and Sport Management for which training is sought and describing how the proposed training relates to the student’s career goals. Letters are not to exceed 500 words.

Applicants for admission to the M.S. in Exercise Science program are evaluated on a competitive basis by the faculty, and acceptance is conferred to the most qualified applicants. Fulfilling admission requirements is necessary to be considered for admission but in no way guarantees acceptance into the program. Students may be admitted in one of the admission status categories outlined in the Graduate Catalog.

Application for admission should be received by the UALR Graduate School by March 15 for students anticipating fall matriculation and October 15 for spring matriculation in order to get full consideration for admittance. Applications received after these dates will be considered as long as program openings remain available. Students who do not meet the above requirements for admission may apply for a faculty review of their qualifications.
