Beginning in the Fall 2007 semester, undergraduate students seeking to become certified Athletic Trainers may select the Bachelor of Science Degree in Athletic Training as an academic degree program. All students are required to complete the Undergraduate Athletic Training Education Program Curriculum in the required sequencing as outlined in the Undergraduate 4-Year Program of Study.
Once formally accepted into the program, athletic training students are required to complete 200 laboratory/clinical hours per semester for four consecutive semesters. It is recommended that not less than 2 hours, nor more than 6 hours be done on any given day, and the hours should average 15-20 each week throughout the semester. These hours typically occur from 2:00 - 9:00 pm Monday through Saturday depending on the clinical rotation. Because of this time commitment, it may not be possible to work part-time or participate in extra-curricular activities during these hours. Individuals who have concerns about meeting the laboratory/clinical hourly requirement should meet with the Director of Clinical Education prior to applying into the ATEP. The plan must be approved by the Director of Clinical Education and the Undergraduate Program Director.
