Bachelor of Science – Athletic Training – 120 Credits

Admission into the athletic training (AT) program 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 AT Program faculty, screens the applications, conducts interviews, and admits students to the professional phase of the AT Program. Admission to the professional phase of the AT program also requires candidates to achieve a 3.00 GPA and a B- or higher in athletic training courses during the first year (HSC 110, HSC 120, ATE 150, PSY 100, and HSC 115), a minimum of three documented observations, a successful interview, satisfactory completion of a written and practical entrance exam, professional reference evaluations/letters of support, an essay, 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 in Hamer Hall 114, or visit the program’s website at www.calu.edu/academics/programs/athletic-training/index.htm.
