Policy on Student Participation in Co-Curricular Activities

Intercollegiate activities won't negatively impact your admission decision for the clinical athletic training program (ATP).

  1. After you're admitted into to the ATP, you may participate in intercollegiate activities with the agreement to fulfill the clinical component of the athletic training education as well as the didactic component. During the traditional season, the ATP will schedule clinical experiences around the student's intercollegiate athletics schedule, however during the non-traditional season, athletics must be scheduled around clinical education requirements.
  2. Athletic training students that are participating in intercollegiate activities must, like all athletic training students, fulfill all didactic and clinical program requirements before graduation. All such students are strongly encouraged to consult the program director early in their program. This will allow students and ATP faculty to effectively plan for students to graduate on time.
  3. All students are required to have a least one "equipment intensive" clinical experience (ex: football or ice hockey). Athletic training students who participate in fall intercollegiate activities will be required to fulfill their "equipment intensive" clinical experience the following semester of the course rotation (spring). You must make arrangements through the program director. 
  4. Athletic training students who are participating in intercollegiate athletics can only participate during one sport's traditional season. Students may only participate during the non-traditional season when that participation does not interfere with their clinical education schedule and any additional ATP requirements, such as, but not limited to professional symposia and community service activities.
