As a future healthcare service provider it is important for athletic training students to develop their knowledge, skills and abilities. In order for students to be able to practice their skills in a supervised manner, each clinical experience course requires the athletic training student to complete at least 50 laboratory hours in the day-to-day care and management of injuries during the semester and at least 300 laboratory hours annually under the guidance of a supervising athletic trainer. In addition, as part of each of the field experience course, athletic training students are required to complete a variety of written comparison assignments and to utilize their knowledge, skills, abilities in the day-to-day care and management of injured individuals at various off-campus sites for at least 150 laboratory hours under the guidance of a supervising allied health professional.

Students accepted into the Athletic Training Program are required to maintain an overall GPA of 2.50 and must complete all ATP courses with a grade of "C" or better.

Each student must comply with the regulations set forth in the Academic Catalogue under which he or she was admitted.
