The admission process for the Athletic Training (AT) Program is separate from the application process for admission to the University. Students do not officially apply for admission into the AT Program until they have met all preadmission criteria (typically takes one year to complete). Admission to the AT Program is competitive and not all who apply can be accommodated. Once admitted into the AT Program, students must maintain retention criteria to remain in and process through the program.
Incoming freshmen and current Missouri State students
Incoming freshmen and current Missouri State University students interested in applying for the Athletic Training major are required to complete the AT Program Interest Form. Students are encouraged to initially declare a pre-sports medicine/Athletic Training major or a Sports Medicine minor. Students will make formal application to the Athletic Training major once they have completed the pre-admission requirements for consideration into the Athletic Training program. To complete the Athletic Training major, students must complete the three-year course and clinical sequence after formal admission into the program.
Transfer students need to speak to the AT Program Director regarding their admission into the Athletic Training major. It is in the student's best interest to discuss their options with the Program Director at least one semester prior to transferring into the program. Transfer students are required to complete the AT Program Interest Form.
