Declaring the Major


Students who wish to declare a major in Exercise Science or Sport Management must:

  1. Have completed a minimum of 1 semester at Rutgers University with a minimum overall GPA of 2.0
    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.

If you meet the criteria to declare, you must register for one of the declaration meetings listed.
Please note that the registration deadline for each orientation session.

To register for one of the sessions, stop by the main office of the Department of Kinesiology and Health, Loree Gym, 70 Lipman Drive, Douglass Campus.

Registration begins Fall 2018.
Registration hours: Monday through Friday - 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM

You must register in person; there is no registration by phone. If you have any questions regarding the procedure, please call 848-932-9525 (press 0 for the main office).

When you come to the Kinesiology and Health main office to register for one of the orientation sessions, you must present an unofficial copy of your current Rutgers transcript, which can be found at: After logging in with your netID, click on Print Full Transcript. Degree Navigator and Webreg printouts are not acceptable. Highlight your overall GPA or, for transfer students in their first semester, the number of credits that transferred in to Rutgers. Be sure your name is electronically printed on your transcript.

* Note: Major GPA will be calculated and verified at the orientation meeting.


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.
