The Application Process for Graduate Students

Individuals who have earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and wish to pursue a profession in athletic training are encouraged to apply to the Master of Athletic Training program at LVC. Students nearing the completion of a bachelor’s degree are also encouraged to apply.  

Admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis with a final application deadline of April 1. Due to the limited number of available program spots, all applicants are encouraged to apply early. The program begins each year in late May/early June. 

There is no fee to apply and although admission decisions are holistic, we strongly consider academic performance. Admission to the program requires a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution* with a minimum undergraduate cumulative GPA of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale. In addition to an offer of admission, various requirements must be completed to be officially admitted into the graduate athletic training program. 

All new full-time graduate students admitted to the Master of Athletic training program are eligible for both an Athletic Training grant and up to $20,000 in scholarships during the fall and spring semesters. For tuition and grant information, please refer to Graduate & Professional Studies Tuition. Please contact for graduate student athletic training scholarship information.
