Jan. 11/2021 - Important Reminder 
Please be advised that current athletic therapy students and kinesiology students who plan to apply to the athletic therapy program in the future should NOT take a standing grade in their kinesiology courses. The Canadian Athletic Therapy Association requires standard grades and taking an S will hinder your progression in the program. To reiterate, do NOT take the Standing option.
