The Recreation and Park Management (RPM) program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation for Recreation, Parks, Tourism, and Related Professions. Students who want to declare a major in recreation and park management at the time of entrance into the degree need to have completed 30 s.h. of coursework at ECU or in transfer credits; possess a minimum overall GPA of 2.0; have completed MATH 1065  or MATH 1066  or higher-level MATH for which MATH 1065  is a prerequisite; and have met with an adviser in the College of Health and Human Performance Advising Center (located in the Belk Annex). Following admission, the student is required to schedule a meeting with his or her RPM faculty advisor. Students majoring in recreation and park management must maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA and a minimum cumulative 2.0 overall GPA in all core and cognate courses to remain in good standing. Majors must earn a minimum grade of C (2.0) in all required core and cognate RCLS prefix courses. If a non-RCLS prefix course is approved as a substitution for a required core or cognate RCLS prefix course, a minimum grade of C (2.0) must be earned. Students dropping below the required 2.0 GPA will not be allowed to enroll in any additional RCLS prefix courses. If a student receives a grade lower than a C (2.0) in a required core or cognate RCLS prefix course, the student may re-take that course without meeting the 2.0 GPA requirements. Students graduating from the RPM program are eligible to sit for the national examination to become a Certified Park and Recreation Professional (CPRP) and thereby acquire this valuable credential for professional advancement.
