Student success is at the forefront of higher education. However, with recent changes in Kentucky state funding for higher education, universities need to fully appreciate and create pathways for students to be successful, while maintaining the academic integrity of the college degree. Within the exercise science major at Murray State University, students are required to take a series of courses in exercise physiology. The coursework is scaffolded, and subsequent courses in the series have listed pre-requisites such as passing previous coursework with a “C” or better and grade point average. With the push to graduate students to improve state funding and reduce time to degree, it is important that each major determine key criteria for success and if pre-requisite course sequences are actually beneficial to the student. Therefore, the purpose of this investigation was to determine if predictors of success could be identified for the exercise physiology series. The results of the correlation analysis identified the ACT science subscale is the strongest of the ACT components to predict success in the exercise physiology sequence (p
