Completing the Exercise Science BS - Applied Exercise Physiology Concentration Program

Academic Requirements

The minimum requirements to complete the Exercise Science degree are:

  • Completion of all general education and UB Curriculum requirements
  • Mininum overall UB GPA of 2.0
  • Minimum major GPA of 2.0

All ES students must maintain a 2.0 GPA in required course work each semester. All students will be monitored each semester to ensure that they are making satisfactory academic progress in the major. Failure to maintain an ES major GPA ≥ 2.0 will result in the student receiving warnings, mandatory advising, and required attendance at an academic workshop. Students who fail to maintain an ES major GPA ≥ 2.0 for three consecutive semesters will be removed from the major. Students must pass all required courses with a D or higher. A student who has been dismissed is not eligible for readmission into the major.

The ES major GPA includes all required ES coursework in the major and is a cumulative GPA. The student's HUB Academic Advisement Report includes the ES major GPA.

Academic Advice

It is essential that students consult an academic advisor when making decisions related to their academic program. Students may contact an advisor from the Office for Academic and Student Affairs at (716) 829-5000 or send an email to sphhp-oasa@buffalo.edu.

Transfer Credit Policy

All prerequisite coursework taken at other institutions must articulate to UB as equivalent courses. Courses that do not articulate to UB will not satisfy requirements for the major. Refer to TAURUS for information on courses at other schools that are equivalent to UB courses.

Prerequisite Courses

ES 207 Human Form & Function
CHE 101 General Chemistry
CHE 102 General Chemistry
ES 200 Introduction to Exercise Science
