B.S. in Athletic Training Program (ATP)
Please Note: As of Fall 2017, the department is no longer accepting applications to the B.S. in Athletic Training Program (ATP).
Only students that have been continuously enrolled since Fall 2017 or prior (as Frosh or transfers) will have the option to apply through the secondary (department level) application process. This application process is not a guarantee that you will be admitted to the program since the secondary application is competitive and space is limited.
There will be two final cohorts admitted to the ATP program via the secondary application process: Fall 2018 and Fall 2019 with applications for admission due in April 2018 and April 2019 respectively.
You must have all the prerequisites completed (or are enrolled in prerequisite classes in the semester that you will apply) in order to be eligible.

Athletic Training (AT) Strategic Alliance
The Athletic Training (AT) Strategic Alliance released an official statement about the professional degree for athletic training. The AT Strategic Alliance is made up of the Board of Certification (BOC), Commission on Accreditation on Athletic Training Education (CAATE), National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) and the NATA Research & Education Foundation. The current Standard 2 states "CAATE accredited professional athletic training programs must result in the granting of a master's degree in Athletic Training."
In order to maintain and continue our CAATE accredited professional (undergraduate) Athletic Training Program (ATP), and prepare for this important degree transition, Fall 2017 was last admission semester for the B.S. in Athletic Training.
Note: Only students who are formally admitted into the Athletic Training Program (ATP) through our secondary ATP admission will be granted a B.S. in Athletic Training.
Please contact Dr. KyungMo Han, Program Director with any questions.
