DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH EDUCATION AND PROMOTION

BS IN ATHLETIC TRAINING

The athletic training degree program is a Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) accredited undergraduate program based on a minimum of 126 s.h.: 42 hours of general education courses, 59 s.h. in the major area, and elective hours which can result in an approved minor or prepare one for further graduate study in an allied health profession such as physical therapy or physician assistant program.  Upon successful completion of this degree, the student will be eligible to sit for the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) certification exam.  There is a strong clinical aspect of the program involving a minimum of 800 supervised hours under a certified athletic trainer.  At least one half of these hours are in addition to regular course work.  Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to the athletic training degree, as it is restricted by an imposed student-to-clinical instructor ratio.  Competitive admission is based upon assessments of the applicant’s academic abilities, knowledge, dedication to the profession, and commitment to the health care of others.  Eligible applicants must have a minimum cumulative and semester GPA of 2.0, completed HLTH 1800, 2810, 2811 with a minimum grade of C, current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification from an approved provider, successfully completed a two-semester (fall and spring, consecutively) candidacy period, passed a health screening/physical examination, a letter of formal application on file, and an interview with the athletic training faculty and staff.  Athletic training students are required to earn a minimum course grade of C in all athletic training courses.  A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 must be sustained throughout the program.  All students in the degree are required to maintain current CPR certification, Hepatitis B immunization (or waiver), and liability insurance for the duration of their involvement in the curriculum.  Verification of CPR certification and liability insurance is required each academic year.  In addition, all student athletic trainers must attend two-thirds of the inservice training sessions given outside of the classroom each semester.  Specific requirements are stated in the Student Athletic Trainer Handbook.  The athletic training degree requires a minimum of 800 practical, supervised clinical hours under the direction of a certified athletic trainer.  The candidacy period does not count toward the total hours required.  The 800 hours are to be achieved outside of the classroom requirements with the exception of HLTH 3860 and 4860.
