Student Transfer Policy

Transfer students need to contact Mark Stutz, the NWU Athletic Training Education Program Director early in the recruiting process. Transfer students must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • 2.75 overall grade point average
  • Completed or be in the process of completing AT/HHP 105 Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries with a grade of "B" (3.0) or better
  • Completed or be in the process of completing AT/HHP 106 Advanced Emergency Care with a "B" (3.0) or better
  • Complete 30 hours of observation under a certified athletic trainer

Prospective transfer students must have successfully completed AT/HHP 105 and AT/HHP 106 at an accredited institution of higher education and upon consultation with the Program Director to determine proficiency mastery. Prospective students that have not completed AT/HHP 105 and AT/HHP 106 are ineligible to apply until they have successfully completed both of those courses. If admitted, transfer athletic training students will be required to complete six semesters of clinical experiences at NWU. Transfer credit will not be allowed for clinical experience or other major required courses in the Athletic Training degree. The Athletic Training Education Program is a competitive enrollment program.
