| On page 108, under the heading ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION, in
the College of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make
the following changes:
Admission and readmission of all students to the University is the responsibility
of the director of admissions. Information about admission to the University
is given in General Information.
Information about admission to teacher preparation programs is available in
the Office of the Dean, George I. Sánchez Building 216.
Admission to majors in kinesiology is restricted. Students should see an adviser
The enrollment in all kinesiology majors has grown dramatically in recent years
so that we currently have over 1000 majors in the department. This number is
up from 500 majors in 2000. We are struggling to keep pace with student demands
for classes, faculty, advisors, and classroom space. Our Department of Kinesiology
and Health Education is currently working on an enrollment management plan, which
will be submitted to the provost in the spring. We have a formal request with
the provost at this time to restrict all majors for the spring of 2006.
