You will be invited to graduate online when you have completed 90 units. If you think you should have been invited to graduate, but have not, contact your faculty advisor. Be sure that your major (Academic Plan) is Kinesiology, the concentration is Exercise Science, and the emphasis (Academic Subplan) is Therapeutic Exercise and Rehabilitation. The assigned faculty advisor will review your graduation application major information. Contact your faculty advisor with any questions about how to enter substitutions. If any changes in coursework are made after your graduation application has been submitted, you must fill out a "Graduation Application Substitution Form" from the Kinesiology office, and have it signed by your advisor and the department chair.
