The Office of Student Services (OSS) advises Kinesiology's undergraduate and prospective students on matters relating to admissions, orientation, registration, curriculum, internships, career planning, and graduate school preparation. OSS can also provide referrals for guidance and counseling, health issues and disabilities, financial concerns, and more. We can help! We strive to present a one-stop, student-friendly environment designed to meet all student needs.
