Athletic Training Advising

When students declare the Athletic Training Major (either by entering the University or changing their major) their official major title will be "Athletic Training-Preprofessional."

Students will be assigned an adviser from the UARC (University Advising Resource Center). This adviser is equipped to help the student choose courses to begin studying in both the Kinesiology and Athletic Training majors. Students should meet with their assigned adviser from the UARC at least once per semester prior to registration.

After the preprofessional year, students are accepted into the Athletic Training Program. At this time, the students will be assigned to the program director, Dr. Robert Sipes, as their faculty adviser. Students are expected to schedule a meeting with their faculty adviser each semester, approximately one week prior to their registration date.

When students arrive at the meeting with the advisor they should bring:

  • Copy of their STAR report
  • 4-year plan
  • A schedule of courses they plan to take the following semester. 
  • Most advising meetings take approximately 20 minutes.
