The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in athletic training that provides the classroom
knowledge and clinical experience needed to become a certified (and licensed) athletic trainer.
The emphasis of Indiana State University's undergraduate athletic training curriculum is to provide students with classroom
knowledge and clinical experiences that are appropriate for the entry-level preparation of a certified athletic trainer.
Coursework in the department emphasizes strong theoretical foundations within each of the areas in athletic training, as well as
critical thinking and problem-solving skills associated with obtaining clinical proficiency. Students also benefit from hands-on clinical
education experiences with health care professionals.
An application process is necessary for the professional component of the major. Matriculating students typically apply during
the spring semester of their freshman year. Transfer students are encouraged to apply when they have completed or are enrolled in
prerequisite course equivalents. Transfer students must provide evidence of equivalent coursework (for example, course descriptions,
syllabi, evidence of competency completion). For further information, including a list of prerequisite courses, visit the
Department of Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation.
In addition, the Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).
Financial Aid & Scholarships
Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
In addition, the Department of Applied Medicine and Rehabilitation offers several scholarships and awards.
