Transfer students with prior graduate-level athletic training education are evaluated on an individual basis. In direct consultation, the student and the MSAT Program Director develop a plan of study that builds on previous learning, addresses necessary content and skill requirements, and ensures the student’s complete incorporation into the program at the college. Transfer students are required to provide the MSAT program director with course descriptions and appropriately dated syllabi for all graduate-level athletic training specific courses prior to approval for transfer credit. Transfer students are held to all application requirements and must complete the application process through ATCAS. As per Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training (CAATE) requirements, students must be enrolled in a CAATE accredited professional-level master’s program for a minimum of two calendar years prior to graduation in order to meet graduation requirements. The MSAT Program reserves the right to request prospective transfer students participate in “placement testing” to determine their knowledge and skill in various athletic training domains of practice. Additionally, once admitted should deficiencies in skills or knowledge be determined by program faculty, transfer students may be required to audit courses where transfer credit was received, as part of a remediation plan.
