Program Planners

Sport and Performance Psychology

Below are the suggested planners for the sport and performance psychology programs.  In each program area, you will see planners reflecting suggested courses for the START TERM (Fall, Spring, Summer) and PROGRAM SPEED (2 or 3 courses per quarter). These planners have been designed to assure you progress from foundational knowledge to a more in-depth understanding of the discipline of sport and performance psychology. While there is no requirement for the number of courses you must complete each quarter, it is highly recommended that the order or courses remain as suggested on the planners. Completion of courses out of order will leave you unprepared for the more advanced work occurring later in the program.

If you have any questions about the planner, suggested coursework or course elective options, please contact Dr. Sarah Castillo, SPP program director or student success for assistance. If you are a current student and would like to change your concentration, please submit a concentration change form.

Sports Medicine


I’m in the doctor of chiropractic/sports medicine program. How do I register?
We take care of course registration on your behalf. So you don’t have to worry about that part. Continuing students will be registered for the next term around week 8 of the current term. New students will be registered for the next term a couple of weeks before the term starts. Once registered, students will receive a confirmation email from the registrar’s office that will include information on how to access the schedule through myUWS.

I want to take approved leave. How do I do this?
Students who wish to take a term off from their program must apply for approved leave. Request an approved leave here.

I’m returning from a leave. Is there anything I need to do to confirm my enrollment?
A member of our student success team will reach out to you soon to confirm your enrollment and answer any questions you have regarding your return to UWS. If you have questions in the meantime, please contact student success at [email protected].

I moved. How do I update my address?
Update your address on Find instructions here.

How many courses do I need to be enrolled in to receive financial aid?
Students receiving financial aid must be enrolled at least half-time as defined by Policy 1203 Enrollment Status and all coursework must be necessary for graduation requirements. For example, taking an additional elective outside of the required 20 credits of electives may not qualify for financial aid. Failure to meet these standards may result in financial penalties or loss of financial aid eligibility.

Can late registration or registration changes affect my financial aid?
Yes, late registration or changes in registration can affect your assessment of charges, which could affect your financial aid.
