Admission to the College of Education is NOT a prerequisite for admission to the ATEP! See details below.
The Athletic Training Education Program requires a separate admissions process. Students must apply and be admitted into the Clinical Education Program (This includes all clinical rotations and major coursework). Upon successful completion of the program prerequisites (see below), a student should submit an application for admission into the Athletic Training Education Program. Admission occurs once a year in the spring semester for fall semester admittance. Applications must be submitted to the ATEP Program Director by May 1st of the spring semester. Transfer students will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
The application process consists of the following:
A grade of "C" or better is required on the following courses:
Completed Admission Application
Stacey Buser, MS, LAT, ATC
Athletic Training Education Program Director
Department of Sport Science and Wellness Education
Infocision Stadium 307I
Akron, OH 44325-5103
Completion of the application process DOES NOT guarantee the applicant a formal interview or admission into the Athletic Training Education Program.
Students who enter the ATEP will also need to apply to the College of Education. Please note, admission to the College of Education is NOT a prerequisite for admission to the ATEP. However, students will need to be admitted to the COE by the end of their first year in the Clinical Education program.
The ATEP Handbook has a thorough explanation of the ATEP policies and procedures. All students enrolled in the ATEP are required to follow such policies and procedures.
