(94 credits, including clinicals)

The bachelor of science degree Athletic Training Education Program at ISU is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. Successful completion of the bachelor of science degree qualifies students to sit for the Board of Certification Examination. Emphasis of this undergraduate athletic training curriculum is to provide students with classroom knowledge and clinical experiences that are appropriate for entry-level preparation as a certified athletic trainer. Course work in the program emphasizes strong theoretical foundations within each of the areas of athletic training, as well as critical thinking and problem solving skills associated with obtaining clinical proficiency. Students also benefit from hands-on clinical education experiences with healthcare professionals.


An application process is necessary for the professional component of the major. Matriculating students typically apply during the spring semester of their freshman year. Transfer students are encouraged to apply when they have completed or are enrolled in prerequisite course equivalents. Transfer students must provide evidence of equivalent course work (i.e. course descriptions, syllabi, evidence of competency completion). Prerequisite courses include Athletic Training 110, 202 (or proof of CPR certification), 210, 210L, 212, 212L, 225, and 280. At the time of application students must submit application, evidence of job shadowing hours, current emergency cardiac care certification, physical examination, technical standards, immunization records (including Hepatitis B or waiver), confidentiality statement, and a copy of transcripts (official transcripts are required from any additional college course work, unofficial ISU transcripts are acceptable). Students are financially responsible for expenses of the application accrued prior to admittance into the professional component of the program. After review of application documents, students will interview with Athletic Training Department Academic and Clinical Faculty. Formal acceptance into the professional component of the program requires a 2.75 cumulative grade point average and successful completion of prerequisite courses. Successful completion of a prerequisite course requires a grade of C or better.
