BS in Athletic Training

The athletic training degree program is a Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) accredited undergraduate program based on a minimum of 126 s.h.: 42 s.h. of foundations curriculum courses, 72 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, or provide the option of teacher licensure with additional coursework. Upon successful completion of this degree, the student will be eligible to sit for the Board of Certification exam. There is a strong clinical aspect of the program involving a minimum of 800 supervised hours under a certified athletic trainer. 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. Candidates are required to submit a separate application process, and it is due August 15 just prior to the beginning of the fall semester you wish to begin your degree. See program web site for details. 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 2.0 GPA, completed ATEP 1800, 2810, 2811 with a minimum grade of C, current cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and first aid 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. There are written technical standards for admission that can be found in the Athletic Training Student Handbook and the program’s web site. Athletic training students are required to earn a minimum course grade of C in all athletic training courses. A minimum semester and cumulative GPA of 2.0 must be sustained throughout the program. All students in the degree are required to maintain current CPR certification, TB status, varicella immunization, hepatitis B immunization (or waiver), and liability insurance for the duration of their involvement in the curriculum. Verification of CPR certification and liability insurance are required each academic year. Specific requirements are stated in the Athletic Training Student 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. Transfer students must meet the above criteria. No transfer athletic training classes will be accepted, but other course work may be allowed on an individual basis. Minimum degree requirement is 126 s.h. of credit as follows:
