The Kinesiology and Athletic Training faculty are here to assist you in the pursuit of your academic goals. Your success depends upon your commitment, responsibility, and dedication to taking the appropriate steps toward these goals. A sound academic plan is a great first step.
FRESHMAN or SOPHOMORE Exercise Science or Applied Fitness & Active Lifestyle Development
If you are a FRESHMAN or SOPHOMORE Exercise Science or Applied Fitness & Active Lifestyle Development student, you must attend a one-hour MAG session to have your department advising hold removed and be able to register for SPRING 2015 classes.
If you do not attend one of the scheduled MAG sessions, your hold will not be removed, and you will not be able to register for SPRING 2015 classes until the first day of non-restrictive registration (December 10).
MAG PowerPoint slides will be posted on the Kinesiology webpage on the CSUN website.
Contact your option advisor if you have any questions. If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled MAG sessions, you must see your option advisor (in person, not via email) at least one week in advance of the first MAG session.
Juniors and Seniors are welcome to attend, but it is not required. Second semester transfer students are highly encouraged to attend.
NEW: You MUST REGISTER for the session you wish to attend and bring your printed registration confirmation with you to be able to enter the room. You may register for one session only.
