NMC Transfer Guide - MTA

To: Central Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Athletic Training / Sports Medicine

This program provides professional preparation for students aspiring to be BOC certified athletic trainers. Certification is obtained by successful completion of an annual test conducted by the N.A.T.A. Because of the specific nature of this program and the amount of internship hours required, it is recommended that the student transfer after one year. This program will take from three-and-a-half to four years after admittance to complete. We recommend you call CMU prior to transfer.

Admission Criteria

  1. Courses below 2.0 will not transfer to CMU.
  2. Overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.
  3. GPA of 3.0 or higher in prerequisite courses (BIO 227 & 228, BIO 220, PSY 101)
  4. 60 hours of practical experience with an athletic trainer.
  5. 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.
