In addition, the student must have a minimum accumulative GPA of 2.500 and a minimum GPA of 2.500 in prerequisite courses. Failure to complete observation hours as part of KINE 1110 and KINE 1650 will disqualify any student from applying to the ATP.

The Program Director along with the Application Committee with review applications and select students will be asked to submit a personal statement and complete a formal interview as the final step of the application process.
Review of Applications:
A student’s application is reviewed and scores are given based on the following:
Cumulative GPA x 6.25 = 25 points possible
AT Prerequisite GPA x 6.25 = 25 points possible
Clinical Observation Evaluations (KINE 1110 and KINE 1650) – averaged and converted to a 20 point scale
Clinical Observation Hours = 10 points possible
Personal Statement and Interview = 20 points possible
Students are ranked based on total score (100 points possible) however the score is a guide and students are accepted into the professional program based on space available, ability to succeed in the professional program and desire to practice as an athletic trainer upon graduation.
