The mission of the Athletic Training Education Program at Long Island University is to provide the highest quality of educational opportunities, working side by side with highly experienced certified athletic trainers dedicated to education of the LIU athletic training student. The program strives to give each student unique opportunities at various settings within the profession. By enhancing and continually improving the education of athletic training students, we strive to give them the experience and knowledge to handle situations his/her professional life may present.

Students in the pre-professional phase should seek academic guidance from faculty/staff in Athletic Training or Health Science to ensure that all requirements are satisfied and will be directed to apply for admission to the professional phase of the Athletic Training Program during their third year.
Transfer Student Policy
Students from other colleges and universities who satisfy the athletic training candidacy or pre-professional requirements may apply for admission to the Professional Phase of the BS/MS degree program. However, the student must first be accepted to Long Island University as an undergraduate transfer by the Admissions application process. Once Admissions accepts the student, the application to the Professional Phase will then be evaluated. At this time, students may petition the program director for acceptance of the following Professional Phase courses from their previous institution: SPS 143, 151, 152, 189 and/or EXS 508. No other Professional Phase SPS or EXS courses are eligible for transfer.
Admission Requirements to Professional Phase
All pre-athletic training candidates including transfer and degree applicants seeking admission to the professional phase must:
Students must successfully complete the following science and math prerequisite courses with no grades lower than a “C”.
Many of our clinical/field experience affiliates now require the completion of criminal background checks and/or drug testing for employees, volunteers and students affiliated with the site. Therefore, LIU students who plan to participate in a clinical/field experience may be asked to undergo a criminal background check, and/or a drug screen. A criminal conviction and/or the use of illegal drugs may impede or bar your entry into your chosen field of study. Students desiring entrance into the School of Health Professions should be aware that our clinical/field affiliates can reject or remove a student from the site if a criminal record is discovered or if a drug test is positive. In the event that a student is rejected from a clinical/field site due to information contained in the criminal background check, or drug screen, you may be unable to complete a required clinical/field experience. If you are unable to complete program requirements, you may be advised to withdraw from the program.
In addition, students seeking entrance into health and human service professions should be aware that the presence of a criminal record can result in the refusal of licensing/certification/registration agencies to issue the credential needed to practice in that field of study. Prospective students are urged to contact the pertinent state and/or federal licensing board to inquire whether a criminal record will have an impact on your eligibility to obtain licensure or certification.Students must complete a fingerprinting/background check prior to placement at the clinical site at their own expense. If a student does not meet the requirement of the clinical site, they will be place at an alternative location. Please see the Clinical Coordinator for information.
