The admission process has two components: an ATCAS application and an EMU Graduate School application. All steps must be completed, and admission requirements met by the deadline for your application to be reviewed by the school.
1) Program Application (ATCAS)
Application materials submitted to ATCAS include:
Applicants must have an earned baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited university or an appropriate international institution. Applicants may apply while their degree is in progress, but degree completion must be documented with official transcripts before the start of the Athletic Training Program. A minimum of a 2.75 overall GPA is required.
Applicants must have earned a “C” or better in a course in the following areas or provide documentation of credential (Course Completion Form):
Applicants must provide documentation of 100 observation hours with an ATC. At no time during your observation, can you represent yourself as an EMU “athletic training student.” You are a student applying to get into the Athletic Training Program.
- Two settings/populations must be observed
- Documentation of hours (provided form) signature of ATC with BOC number and state license number

2) Graduate School Application (ApplyEMU)
The application deadline is February 1, applications will be reviewed beginning on that date. Initially, applications will be evaluated for the minimum requirements (completion of the portfolio). The Athletic Training Advisory Committee will review applications that meet the minimum requirements. Applicants will be notified by March 1 if they will be granted an interview. Admissions in the MAT program is competitive; not all applicants will be granted an interview.
