The Athletic Training Education Program's admission process is competitive in nature, with only a limited number of candidates being officially admitted each year. The deadline for admission to the program is February 15th of each year. All general education requirements are offered at ETBU or may be transferred from another college or university. Courses within the major must be taken at ETBU. Transfer students will be evaluated on an individual basis in reference to the major courses. The profession of athletic training is physically as well as emotionally demanding. Students seeking a degree in athletic training must have certain abilities and skills relevant to the profession. Reasonable accommodations will be made for disabilities; however, athletic training students are expected to perform in a reasonably independent manner. Athletic training students will be expected to perform clinical proficiency skills in a laboratory setting as well as real-life situations.
