Choosing the Sport Science Closed Enrolment Option
If you're planning to enter a Sport Science program, entering the Closed Enrolment option offers the important benefit of granting you early registration for courses. Many classes fill quickly, so early registration helps ensure you get the courses needed to complete your diploma. You must meet specific prerequisites for this program, and spaces are limited - so apply early.
(If you do not qualify as a Closed Enrolment student, you may still register in any Sport Science course as a General Studies student.)
