Athletic training students from other Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) entry-level graduate accredited institution interested in transferring to UCO must meet all admission requirements for the Graduate College and GATP within published deadline dates. 

Only a maximum of nine semester hours of transfer graduate credits from a U.S. accredited, degree granting institution can be accepted by the Graduate College, but these courses/hours may not be accepted by the GATP.  Because of the "Learning-Over-Time" requirement of the CAATE, all courses must be taken in curriculum sequence. 

If admitted to the program, transfer students would be required to attend the July semester of the first year at the pre-professional level to complete the post admission requirements of the program.  After careful review of student's transcript, the program director may, on an individual basis, accept an academic course or courses only if the course title, objectives, assigned psychomotor skills and clinical competencies match up with GATP curriculum.

Even though the student may have completed psychomotor and clinical proficiencies, transfer students must enroll in all of the GATP clinical courses.  The program director may accept previously signed proficiency forms, but the student will be required to demonstrate the skills again during each clinical course enrolled.  All Graduate College and GATP requirements will be in effect for graduation.  Transferring may delay expected graduation date.
