Accreditation

The baccalaureate program in Athletic Training at Midwestern State University vountarily withdrew its accreditation with the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) (6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100 Austin, TX 78731-3184) in the spring of 2020. CAATE accepted the program's voluntary withdrawal on April 27, 2020.

What does this mean for the athletic training undergraduate program? We will be teaching out the remain classes under CAATE standards through August 31, 2023. We will also be accepting new students into the program. Once students complete the undergraduate athletic training curriculum, they will be able to take the state of Texas licensure exam to work in Texas. Since CAATE is requiring all accredited athletic training programs shift to a masters level program, these students also have the opportunity to enroll in masters level program once they complete our program. This will allow those students who choose a masters level athletic training program eligiblity to take the BOC exam.
