Bachelor of Science – Athletic Training – 120 Credits

Admission into the athletic training education program (ATEP) is competitive and only a limited number of students are selected each year. In the second semester of the freshman year, interested preprofessional students submit an application form to the program director, who, with the other ATEP faculty, screens the applications, conducts interviews and admits students to the professional phase of the ATEP. Candidates must have a 3.00 GPA in athletic training courses, a minimum of three documented observations, a successful interview, satisfactory completion of a written and practical entrance exam, and the ability to comply with the program’s technical standards, with or without reasonable accommodation. For additional details on admission requirements, transfer requirements and/or a copy of the program’s technical standards, contact the program director at Hamer Hall 114, or visit the program’s website at www.calu.edu/academics/programs/athletic-training/index.htm.
