NMC Transfer Guide - MTA

To: Central Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Athletic Training, B.S.A.T.

This program is designed for students interested in completing a master's degree in athletic training in 5 years. In order to receive the B.S.A.T., students must complete the M.S.A.T. requirements. The goal of CMU's B.S.A.T. is to prepare students to transition into the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) accredited graduate Athletic Training Program. We recommend you call CMU early in your academic career.

Admission Criteria

  1. Courses below 2.0 will not transfer to CMU.
  2. Overall GPA of 2.7 or higher.
  3. GPA of 3.0 or higher in prerequisite courses (BIO 227 & 228, BIO 220, PSY 101).
  4. Completion of BIO 110, CHM 101, PHY 105, PSY 211 and MTH 131.
  5. CMU has additional course admission requirements that can't be taken at NMC.
  6. 60 hours of practical experience with an athletic trainer.
  7. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with a CMU advisor early in academic career.

Basic Requirements

Upon request at the NMC Records and Registration Office, a statement will be placed on your transcript, "MICHIGAN TRANSFER AGREEMENT (MTA) SATISFIED". Completion of the MTA will satisfy CMU's University Program requirements and 6 credits of their Writing Intensive requirement.
