- KINE 1660 (Athletic Training Taping techniques -- minimum grade B-)
- KINE 2510* (Human Anatomy -- minimum grade C+);
*We will provisionally accept students with less than a C+ in anatomy provided they repeat the class within 12 months and obtain the C+ required.
- KINE 2520* (Human Anatomy Lab -- minimum grade B-)
*We will provisionally accept students with less than a B- in anatomy lab provided they repeat the class within 12 months and obtain the B- required.
- HEAL 1500 (First Aid -- minimum grade C+)
- Obtain a minimum 2.500 GPA in the required 12 credit hours of athletic training core courses.
- Be evaluated by the student mentors that the observation student shadows during the observation year.
- Complete 12 observation hours per semester shadowing upper class ATEP students.
- Complete and submit to the program director the application for acceptance into the professional program found on the KINE 1650 dl site.
- Complete an interview with the ATEP admissions committee.
Scores are calculated as follows:
- GPA x 6.25 = pts. (25 pts. possible)
- Core GPA x 6.25 = pts. (25 pts. possible)
- Clinical evaluation by mentors: average of evaluation scores will be converted into a 20 point scale.
- Interview, 20 pts.
- Clinical Hours, 10 pts. possible (all or none).
Total points = 100
Students are ordered by total score. The score is a guide and students are accepted
into the professional program on a space available basis. All students are evaluated
on a case by case basis. Our maximum capacity is 24 students per entering second year
class, based on the efficiency of instruction, the number of off-campus clinical sites
and the number of clinical opportunities in intercollegiate athletics at UT.

Retention procedures include the following principles:
- Should a student's OVERALL GPA or their CORE GPA fall below 2.500, they are on probation in the athletic training education program.
- Should a student return to a 2.500 GPA for the semester on probation, they would be reinstated to full rights and privileges. If the semester GPA or semester core GPA is at 2.500 or above, but the overall GPA or core GPA is still below 2.500, they will be continued on probation.
- Should the student on probation not obtain a 2.500 GPA for the semester they are on probation, they are suspended from athletic training clinical experience until the OVERALL GPA or CORE GPA is at 2.500. Due to the sequencing of Clinical Skills Development and the class requirement of clinical practice, students may not take ANY athletic training courses while on suspension. Attaining a semester GPA of 2.500 is no longer sufficient to be reinstated for clinical experiences.
- Should the student who is suspended from clinical experiences fail to obtain a 2.500 GPA for the semester, they will be dismissed from the athletic training education program and referred to the College of Health Science and Human Service Office of Student Services for advising in another major area of study.
- Appeal of any of these sanctions is to the Program Director. Any further appeal should be made through the normal university grievance procedures.
