Graduate Students: How to Apply

Am I eligible to apply?

We use a holistic approach in giving careful consideration to all credentials in an application. Applicants who do not meet the minimum GPA of a 3.0 on a 4.0 scale during the last 60 credit hours of their bachelor's degree must have at least 5 years of professional work experience and submit a letter of intent describing how the professional work experience has contributed to your ability to perform in graduate school. We admit on a rolling admission basis, so complete your application for review as early as possible.


Application Deadlines:

  • November 22, 2019 - Spring 2020 (January 6 start)
  • February 1, 2020 - Athletic Training deadline for summer 2020 (May 26 start)
