Admission Requirements for Athletic Training
The AT program exercises a competitive and formal admissions policy. Students meeting the minimum requirements for admission are not guaranteed acceptance into the AT program.  Students are admitted as space within the program allows, and admitted applicants generally exceed the minimum requirements.

All students wishing to enter the AT program directly from high school and all students wishing to transfer to the AT program are, first and foremost, subject to the admission procedures and standards of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Admission to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette as a Athletic Training Major does not grant the student formal admission into the AT program nor progression into Athletic Training Core Coursework.

The minimum requirements to be eligible for admission into the program are:
  1. 2.50 overall adjusted G.P.A.
  2. A minimum grade of "C" in BIOL 110, 112, BIOL 216*, 217* (or BIOL 220*, 221*), HLTH 100, 101; and a grade of "B" or better in KNES 201 and 230. * With permission from the Program Director, students may be admitted to the Program during the Semester in which they are enrolled in BIOL 216/217 or BIOL 220,221.*
  3. Minimum grade of 'B' or better in KNES 201 and KNES 230.
  4. Completed AT Program application form, including completed physical examination by physician/nurse practitioner, signed Technical Standards form, TB skin test (Chest x-ray if positive), current MMR/tetanus immunization, verification of Hepatitis B vaccination or waiver form, signed Permission to View Health Screening Form, and a copy of current American Red Cross/American Heart Association / AAOS First Aid and CPR Certification cards.  Links to all forms provided below.
Applicants should allow several weeks to complete all portions of the application process (see program application checklist).  The deadline for submitting completed application forms to AT faculty is once an academic year on November 15. Students accepted into the program will begin clinical educational experiences in the following  spring.  Students are encouraged to only apply for admission into the AT program if they meet all of the admission requirements.

* With permission from the Program Director, students may be admitted to the Program during the Semester in which they are enrolled in BIOL 221,222.*
