Athletic Training (B.S.A.T.)

Admissions Information for 2018-2019 Catalog Year

The Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education has mandated that all professional preparation Athletic Training programs must be at the master's level by 2022. The FGCU B.S.A.T. program is in the process of transitioning to the master's level. Consequently, it is anticipated that the class entering in fall 2018 will be the last entering class at the bachelor level. To be considered for this final B.S.A.T. class, students must submit an athletic training supplemental application by February 1st, 2018. All applications received after February 1st will be considered on a space-available basis. More information:
