Program Accreditation

In May 2005, the Athletic Training Education Program was granted initial accreditation through the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) through the recommendation of the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Athletic Training (JRC-AT). CAAHEP is the largest external programmatic accreditors for the health sciences fields.

In July 2006, the JRC-AT broke away from CAAHEP to form the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). This is an independent accreditation agency dedicated toward the advancement of the education of athletic trainers.

The program went through the CAATE accreditation reaffirmation process in the 2009-2010 academic year. This included completing an institutional self study document and a CAATE site visit. The program was re-accredited until the 2019-2020 academic year. The program has been placed on Probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE, 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101. This is due to the three year average first time pass rate on the Board of Certification exam being below 70%. Since a major programmatic revision in academic year 2014-2015, the average for first time test takers is 90%. The changes that have been implemented are instrumental to the success of the students and it is anticipated that the probationary status will be removed in 2017.
