Dear Prospective Student:

Thanks for your interest in the Cal State Fullerton Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training major. “Athletic Trainers (ATs) are health care professionals who collaborate with physicians to provide preventative services, emergency care, clinical diagnosis, therapeutic intervention and rehabilitation of injuries and medical conditions.” (CAATE, 2017)

Our CAATE-accredited degree program allows graduates to take the national Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) exam to become a Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC). To be a CSUF AT major, students must be a full-time University undergraduate student in good standing. For new or transfer students, the University application period generally opens in early October and closes near the end of November. Check with CSUF Admissions & Records for details and to be certain of your University application.

In addition to University admission, all potential AT majors must complete our distinct Athletic Training Program (ATP) application process. Acceptance to the ATP occurs through a competitive admissions process. Due to our impending application to transition our current BSAT program to the masters’ level, we will not be accepting applications for the Fall 2018 cohort.

To learn more about athletic training, visit the websites of our professional organization – the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA), the Board of Certification (BOC), or our accrediting agency – the Commission on the Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), as well as explore our website.

Our mission is to mentor our AT majors “…to become exceptional evidence-based healthcare professionals and distinguished athletic trainers.” As such, quality remains our top priority, as evidenced by our exceptional student-preceptor ratio (approximately 1:1) and our students’ (ATS) success on the national board BOC exam. Our first-time and overall BOC pass rate for the previous three years (2014-2017) is 100% (22 of 22). Since our initial accreditation, 94.2% of those completing the major became AT's. Our alumni currently work in various settings including professional sports teams, colleges/universities, high schools, military bases, clinics, hospitals, medical offices, and industrial settings, among others.
