Admission Requirements

Students wishing to enroll in the-dual degree program have two entry options:

(1) Direct admission to the dual-degree program
Students entering Hofstra as incoming freshmen can apply for direct admission to this dual-degree program.  Applicants must have a combined SAT score of 1220 (or an ACT score of 27) and an overall high school GPA of 3.5 (or be in the top 15 percent of their high school graduating class) in order to be considered for admission.  Students admitted directly to the dual-degree program as incoming freshmen will be admitted automatically to the M.S. program at the end of their junior year provided that they fulfill the following requirements:

  • a cumulative GPA of 3.0 following completion of at least 90 s.h. of course work toward the B.S. degree; and
  • successful completion of PESP 109 and PESP 106.

(2) Admission to the dual-degree program for current Hofstra students
Qualified Hofstra students majoring in Physical Education (B.S.) or qualified transfer students can apply for admission to the dual-degree program upon completion of the first semester of their junior year of undergraduate work.  In order to qualify for admission to the dual-degree program, a student must attain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time of application.  Students admitted to the dual-degree program should note that admission to the M.S. portion of the program requires the fulfillment of the following requirements:

  • a cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time of application to the M.S. program;  and
  • successful completion of PESP 109 and PESP 106.

Undergraduate students must apply and be accepted and/or transitioned into the graduate program before being allowed to take graduate courses as part of their undergraduate program.  In addition, students must complete at least 90 s.h. toward their B.S. degree, with at least 30 s.h. completed in residence at Hofstra, before being permitted to take graduate courses for the M.S. program in Health & Physical Education.
