Program Description

The Athletic Training Program (ATP) at Baylor University is designed for students interested in pursuing a career as a Certified Athletic Trainer. Coursework in the new program will lead to a Master's of Athletic Training (MAT) degree. All students who are accepted and enroll in the program will receive a 40% tuition remission in the first year that will be increased to at least 45% in the second year of the program. The approximate start date for the 2020-2021 class will be June 15, 2020. The application deadline for the 2020-2021 class is March 1, 2020. However, the MAT program will offer an early application period. Those who want to receive an early admission decision should submit their application materials by October 31, 2019.

Baylor University's ATP is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). Students who graduate from the MAT program are eligible to sit for the BOC Examination. Currently, the program's three-year aggregate first time pass rate for the BOC Exam is 88%.
