About the Program | Athletic Training
Carroll University’s Athletic Training program is a CAATE accredited program. Carroll University received its initial accreditation in October 2003. The mission of the CAATE is to provide comprehensive accreditation services to institutions that offer athletic training degree programs and verify that all CAATE-accredited programs meet the acceptable educational standards for athletic training education.
Athletic Training Program Admission
Carroll University will no longer accepts freshman direct admit students into its Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training program. The institution is in the process of developing an entry-level Master of Science in Athletic Training (MSAT) program and subsequently will seek Higher Learning Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) approval. Current CU students and transfer students with prior earned college credits can apply and will be evaluated on an individual basis as they may still qualify for the Bachelor of Science degree.
The anticipated first cohort in the MSAT program is fall 2020, contingent on receiving accreditation approvals.
Students interested in pursuing an entry-level MSAT degree may gain acceptance via one of the following options:
- Enroll at Carroll as a first year student in the Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science program with a pre-athletic training emphasis. Potential to complete both the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five total years (3+2 academic plan), provided student meets all prerequisites, progression standards requirements and program has received all required approvals.
- Transfer to Carroll to complete an undergraduate degree and meet all prerequisites and progression standards prior to beginning the MSAT program.
- Currently have an undergraduate degree and meet all program prerequisites.
