Declaring the Major

Students who wish to declare a major in Exercise Science and Sport Studies must:

  1. Have completed a minimum of 1 semester at Rutgers University with a minimum overall GPA of 2.0
    OR
    Have transferred in to Rutgers University with a minimum of 15 credits

  2. Attend a department declaration meeting

    Department declaration meetings are held during the fall and spring semesters, prior to the pre-registration period for the following semester.  Information about registering for a declaration meeting will be posted on the department website.  Students who meet requirement 1 should check the department website regularly once the semester starts for information about the declaration meetings.


Students in the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) or the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) will use the MyMajor system to submit the major declaration request.  The declaration request will be approved after the student attends the department declaration meeting.
