The athletic training program admits qualified students regardless of race, color, creed, sex, age, sexual orientation, marital status, national or ethnic origin or handicap that does not interfere with the performance of professional athletic training practice as provided by law.

Applications and credentials for admission to the athletic training program must be submitted for processing to the Carroll University Office of Admission. Applicants must be in good standing (be free of academic and or disciplinary probation) at all institutions previously attended. Decisions on applications are made by a selection committee comprised of the athletic training faculty/staff members. Applicants are notified of their status through the Office of Admission.

Students who meet the admission and prerequisite professional phase criteria are granted admission to the professional phase of the athletic training program. Students must also fulfill technical standards and caregiver background and criminal history check to be admitted to the professional phase of the athletic training program.

Students who fail to meet the professional phase admission criteria, who fail to meet technical standards requirements, or who do not pass the caregiver and background criminal history check can be denied admittance to the professional phase of the athletic training program.
