Applicants must apply to both UCF Graduate Admissions and the Athletic Training Centralized Application System (ATCAS).

For information on general UCF graduate admissions requirements that apply to all prospective students, please visit the Admissions section of the Graduate Catalog. All requested materials must be submitted by the established deadline.

The Athletic Training Program participates in the Athletic Training Centralized Application Service, known as ATCAS. Prospective students must apply online using the ATCAS application.

All application materials MUST be sent directly to ATCAS. Materials sent directly to the AT Program will not be accepted. To learn more about the ATCAS application process, visit http://caate.net/apply-now/.

The AT Program will begin reviewing applications on February 1.  Students may continue to apply and will be evaluated (rolling admissions) until seats are filled.

The following application materials must be received by ATCAS:

  • Completed ATCAS application including all documents required by ATCAS.
  • One official transcript from each college/university attended.
    • The transcripts must demonstrate a minimum of a 3.0 overall GPA in undergraduate coursework and completion of prerequisite coursework with a minimum grade of “C” (2.0).

Candidates with all prerequisites completed at the time of application may be given preference over those still completing courses.

  • The bachelor’s degree may be in any discipline from a regionally accredited institution and may be in progress at the time of application. However, the degree must be awarded prior to the program’s start date in the Summer C semester (mid-May).
  • Applicants who have attended a college/university outside the United States must also provide a course-by-course credential evaluation with GPA calculation.
  • Official GRE scores should be submitted to UCF ATCAS using GRE CODE 4241. Please note: the program does not consider GRE scores in admissions decisions.
  • Proof of 50 hours of observation of an athletic trainer (BOC certified) in a high school, collegiate, and/or professional sports setting
  • Three (3) letters of recommendation with ATCAS recommendation forms, including one from an athletic trainer
  • Complete a personal statement/essay about professional goals and the discipline of athletic training

Incomplete applications will NOT be reviewed.

An on-campus interview, by invitation only, may be required after the initial application review process is complete. Admission to the program is competitive.  Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee an applicant an interview or admission to the program.

Admissions decisions will be made only once per year. Incoming students must begin the program in the summer C semester (mid-May).

All applicants to the Program are expected to review the UCF AT Program Essential Functions.

  • International students with transcripts from foreign institutions of higher education must also submit a foreign credentials evaluation available through World Education Services. The transcript must be translated to English and a course by course evaluation must be completed.
