Athletic Training

In tandem with national changes, SRU is transitioning the Athletic Training BS program to a Master of Science degree. As a result, SRU is no longer accepting undergraduate students into the Athletic Training BS program.  The SRU Class of 2020 will be the last cohort to graduate from the Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training degree.  

The application process for the athletic training graduate program for the 2019-2020 academic year is now open. Visit graduate admissions for further details about the application process. 

The application submission deadline for the Master of Science in Athletic Training is Friday, February 15, 2019.  All application materials must be received no later than Wednesday, February 20, 2019.

For summer 2019, SRU's Athletic Training Graduate Program is offering a $300 textbook scholarship to the first 10 students enrolled in the graduate program in July 2019.

Athletic Training prepares selected students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to provide care to athletes and the physically active within the five domains of athletic training practice.  In order for students to attain the Board of Certification (BOC) credentials, an individual must complete a professional athletic training education program accredited by CAATE and pass the BOC credentialing exam.  To practice legally as an athletic trainer, an individual must hold proper state regulatory credentials.

Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program will have its next comprehensive review during the 2020-2021 academic year.
