Prospective Student Information
In order to be accepted into the Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP), the students must apply and be admitted to the program. See the requirements for the ATEP program listed below.
Pre-Professional Phase, Phase I
Students interested in pursuing a degree in Athletic Training must meet the admission requirements for Emporia State University to enter Phase I. Classroom instruction, clinical observation, and directed clinical experiences formulate the pre-requisites for admission to Phase II. The primary purpose of the Phase I program is to help students gain insight, knowledge, responsibility, and understanding of the athletic trainer’s role. During Phase I, students are provided the information and opportunity necessary to determine if they wish to continue with athletic training education. The student must have completed (or be in progress) HL 150, HL 155, PY 100, GB 140/141, CH 123/124 with an cumulative GPA of a B- (2.7) or better and a minimum grade of a C in PE 271 and 272.
Phase I Application - Applications are due by August 1st of the first academic attendance year
Professional Phase, Phase II
Phase II, the Professional Program, requires three years of study. Theoretical concepts and skills related to athletic training are presented in classroom, clinical, and field experiences. Completion of the Professional Program enables students to take the BOC examination. Once students have completed the prerequisite coursework in the Pre-Professional Phase, made application to the Professional Phase (Phase II) and are accepted into Phase II, then the student is admitted into Phase II. Students typically apply to the ATEP during the Spring semester of the Freshman year. Transfer students must apply in the spring semester prior to transferring.
Phase II Application - Applications are due by March 1st of the Spring semester prior to beginning the professional phase.
