Athletic Training Transfer Requirements

Please review the program information, including mission, program learning outcomes, and expectations on our Athletic Training webpage. The Athletic Training major provides an excellent foundation in the domains of athletic training (e.g., prevention, clinical evaluation and diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation, professional responsibility) from which AT majors can pursue entry-level employment or graduate study in athletic training or other healthcare/related fields. Our accreditation status (Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education – CAATE) allows athletic training students to meet eligibility requirements for taking the Board of Certification (BOC) examination upon completion of the degree. Athletic training is a limited access program.

Acceptance into the Athletic Training Program (AT Program) requires a secondary application (Portfolio) process beyond that required for admission into the University of Florida. Due to the competitive nature and restricted capacity, the Board of Governors has designated the AT Program a Limited Access Program. Please review the most recent version of the UF Undergraduate Catalog and speak to your academic advisor. University of Florida, Department of Applied Physiology, and AT Program Admission Requirements must be received on or before February 1st for consideration.
