Students who have met the UCF general education program (GEP) requirements, Athletic Training pre-requisite courses, and other Athletic Training admission requirements are eligible to apply. Applicants must be accepted as a student to UCF before they can be accepted into the program. Please visit UCF Admissions for an undergraduate application if you are not already a student at UCF.

The Athletic Training Program is a restricted access program accepting between 25-30 students each year. For information on prerequisites, admission requirements, and the official program of study, please visit the program page in the current undergraduate catalog.

In addition to applying to UCF, students must also submit a separate program application to the Athletic Training Program no later than March 1st of the academic year in which they seek admission. The complete application process includes all of the following documents:

  • Transcripts from ALL schools you have attended or a UCF audit (if all previous AP or college credit is listed on your audit)
  • Proof of admission to UCF (if you are a currently transferring student)
