Once admitted to the program, the student must demonstrate and maintain satisfactory academic and clinical progress as defined below:
Students must complete BIOL 213/214 and 215/216 with a minimum grade of “C” in each section before the spring semester of their junior year. Students who don’t receive a grade of “C” or better will be suspended from the ATP for a minimum of one academic year or until they have earned a “C” or better.
Liberty University’s ATP understands sometimes extenuating circumstances occur in life that may affect a student’s academic performance. Thus if an extenuating circumstance (i.e. illness, family situation) occurs in a student’s life while he/she is enrolled in the ATP that affects the student’s education/GPA, the student can petition to the Program Director for approval to continue in the ATP. The program director will meet with the admissions committee to discuss the petition prior to giving the student a decision. Students will be placed on probation if the admissions committee approves of the petition. Issues will be considered on an individual basis and must constitute mitigating circumstances beyond the control of the student or program.
Students must complete each clinical and academic course in the order prescribed.
Satisfactory citizenship and behavior must be demonstrated, per the university’s and the program’s codes of conduct as outlined in the Liberty Way and in the Athletic Training Education Program Handbook.
To appeal decisions concerning their status in the Athletic Training Program, students must submit a written appeal to the Program Director within one week of the notification in question. The documentation must include a detailed justification for the appeal.
