Requirements for Admissions

Admission into the Athletic Training Education Program at WJU is a competitive one. Declaring athletic training as your major does not necessarily guarantee acceptance into the program. If acceptance is not granted, you may re-apply the following year. All students wishing to enter the program must apply for and meet the following criteria by end of his or her freshman year. Final determination of who is accepted is based upon the factors listed below and the number of available spots. Upon acceptance, the student will then be required to fulfill the obligations required of an athletic training student as described in the Athletic Training Student Handbook. Any violations of these requirements could result in dismissal from the program, and at any time the Program Director has the right to dismiss a student for appropriate reason.

The following is a list of requirements for eligibility to gain acceptance into the athletic training program at WJU:

  1. Minimum 2.8 cumulative GPA
  2. Minimum of a "C" in the allied health science classes (BIO 127, 128, 129; CLS 121)
  3. Minimum of 30 hours of clinical observation during first two semesters
  4. Acknowledgement and compliance with the ATEP Technical Standards (2.0.1)
  5. Completion of the ATEP physical form

    ***If needed***

  6. Professional letter of application explaining why you declared Athletic Training as a major.
  7. Successful interview with the Program Director and Clinical Education Coordinator.
