*NOTE*  

The Athletic Training program is currently not accepting applications for admission.

 

NEW General Considerations and Requirements (EFFECTIVE 2014 ADMISSION):

  • In-depth knowledge about the profession: This is extremely important and will make you a stronger, more informed applicant who is confident and secure in your choice of a career. An excellent place to begin learning more is http://www.nata.org/, the web site of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.
  • The Athletic Training Program is a 2-year upper-division professional program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.  A minimum of 60 credits is required for admission, including required, recommended, and elective courses.  Remember that you might need to take additional courses not listed on this sheet in order to reach the 60 credit minimum.
  • Minimum required courses include: Successful completion of 3 credits of English composition; 3 credits in arts; 3 credits of humanities; 3 credits of introductory (100 level) and 3 credits of intermediate or higher (200 – 400 level) social and behavioral sciences; *8 credits biology (to include 1 course in human physiology); *4 credits chemistry; *4 credits  physics; 3 credits  calculus; 3 credits statistics; 3 credits medical terminology; 2 credits nutrition; and 2 credits Supplement Use in Sports (only available on-line through Stony Brook University). *Science classes must have labs.  Natural science courses (biology, chemistry, physics) less than 10 years old are preferred.  Please note that Stony Brook University may require prerequisites for some of these courses.  The other side of this sheet outlines prerequisites for students enrolled at Stony Brook as well as minimum grade requirements.
  • If you are a student at another college or university and are interested in one of the programs at the Health Sciences Center (HSC), please check with your pre-health advisor regarding the best way for you to meet Stony Brook’s prerequisites through the courses offered at your school. It is also highly recommended that you contact the Athletic Training Program (631-632-2837) to arrange a meeting with a faculty advisor.
  • Stony Brook freshmen have the opportunity to declare athletic training as a lower division major by making an appointment with the program department chair. Students successfully completing the lower division component of the major are automatically advanced to the upper division professional program. Freshmen accepted into the lower division major must successfully complete 60 credits and program specific prerequisites by the end of the sophomore year, pass HAL 205 with a grade of “B+” or better, obtain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 and *science GPA of 2.5, and meet the academic standards below.
  • The Athletic Training Program at Stony Brook also requires students to be certified in healthcare provider CPR.  HAL 210, Emergency Care of Athletic Injuries, is a prerequisite 3 credit course offered at Stony Brook that will give you this opportunity and also count toward the minimum of 60 completed credits required of all applicants.
  • Admission into the Athletic Training Program at Stony Brook also requires students to fulfill a requirement of 50 observation hours with an Athletic Trainer (AT).  HAL 205, Introduction to Athletic Training, is a prerequisite 3 credit course offered at Stony Brook that will give you the opportunity to obtain the required observation hours and also count toward the minimum of 60 completed credits required of all applicants.
  • Before you apply, evaluate your academic strength as an applicant. The minimum grade point average (GPA) for upper division program applicants is 2.5.  Consult with the program or a pre-health advisor before applying.
  • All students, except freshman declared, must submit an on-line HSC application by the deadline (March 15th) of the year they wish to enter. Apply on-line at: https://app.applyyourself.com/?id=SUNYSB-SHM
  • Get further information about the Athletic Training Program contact 631-632-2837, or visit the web at: http://healthtechnology.stonybrookmedicine.edu/programs/at.   Information sessions are held on the first Tuesday of each month in the Sport Complex, Room G33 except January, June, July and August. See schedule on web site.
  • The Stony Brook University Athletic Training Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (http://www.caate.net/). The Athletic Training Program is also an education program approved by the New York State Department of Education.
