Note to Prospective Students

The Athletic Training program at Florida Southern College has voluntarily withdrawn their accreditation and is no longer admitting students. The date of voluntary withdrawal of accreditation coincides with the graduation of the last cohort in May 2019.

If you are visiting this page as a potential student we encourage you to consider one of our other health-related majors such as Biotechnology, Exercise Science, Healthcare Administration, or Nursing.

Florida Southern College is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program has been placed on Probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE, 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 79731-3101.

On May 20, 2015 the accrediting body for Athletic Training Education programs (known as CAATE) announced a decision to make the masters degree the entry-level professional degree for athletic training professionals. This will not impact current certified athletic trainers, previous graduates of the program, current students, or students who entered the program in fall 2015.
