Athletic training transfer information

Accredited athletic training program transfer

Students who are in good standing at another program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) and who wish to transfer to Northwestern College must contact the program director by October of the fall semester of application to receive instruction about the process. These transfer applications will be reviewed according to the same criteria used for other students applying to the program. Advanced placement of students will be determined after admission to the program. The transfer student will be given a battery of tests, including physical skills assessment to determine any advanced placement to the extent that the first year of program requirements may be waived. All transfer students must minimally complete the final two-year sequence of athletic training course work and clinical practicums.

Non-accredited athletic training program transfer

Students who wish to transfer from another college or university where they were not already admitted to a CAATE-accredited athletic training education program must follow the same admission procedures as any first-year student.
