Athletic Training - BS

This worksheet is a planning tool and enrollment guide for use when you enroll in classes in June prior to attending Summer Springboard.

The purple area identifies the required major related courses and Cluster One GenEd courses to select from for your first semester.

Use the GenEd section to identify additional classes to add to your schedule to create a full schedule.

Departmental Recommendations:

  1. If your Math Placement Exam STAT score places you into MATH 105, enroll in MATH 105 for your first semester to stay on track. If your STAT score places you into MATH 220, you may enroll if a class is available. Otherwise you may take MATH 220 in your second semester.
  2. Enroll in two of the following courses: ATEP 205 OR CHEM 120 OR HTH 100.
  3. Enroll in a Critical Thinking OR Human Communications course from the Cluster One Requirement section.
  4. Add General Education courses to create a schedule of 14 - 16 credit hours.
  5. If you are interested in Pre-professional Health Preparation, refer to the information in Module 3 under Special Student Categories for information on selecting General Education courses.

Placement Exams:

Your placement exam scores identify the appropriate course level based upon your current skills.

Math Placement Exam (MPE) Score: You need to know your Math Placement Exam scores to determine your math placement for the 1st-semester or a future semester. After completion of the MPE, enter your scores in the field below so you have this information available if you are required to take a math course your 1st-semester. If a math course is required the 1st-semester, it will be identified in the purple section below. If math is not listed, you will take math in a future semester. The MyMadison system will not allow you to enroll in a course other than your placement recommendation.

General Education Courses

Complete the schedule planning process by using the General Education Planner below to identify courses to add to your schedule to create a full schedule of 14 - 16 credit hours. The number of GenEd courses you need to add from the list below is major dependent. Based on the required courses above, some majors will only need to add one GenEd course from the list below while others may need to add three GenEd courses to create a full schedule.

Notes:

Cluster One - Writing: If you do not have AP,IB,CIE or dual enrollment credit for WRTC 103, we encourage you enroll your 1st-semester. If a WRTC 103 course is not available, you will enroll in the following semester.

Cluster Three - Quantitative Reasoning: Math courses are restricted to students in majors that require a math class in the 1st-semester. If your major requires math in the 1st-semester, it will be indicated above in the purple Required area of this worksheet. If a math course is not identified in the purple Required section above, your advisor will discuss your math placement score and math recommendation for your major when you meet in the summer.

Cluster Four - American Experience: This is an area where many students have earned credit through AP, IB, CIE or dual enrollment courses taken in high school. If you are waiting on test or grade results, we recommend you enroll in a GenEd course from a different cluster or cluster area until you receive your results.

Cluster Five - Sociocultural Domain: If you are waiting on test or grade results for Psychology through AP, IB, CIE or dual enrollment courses taken in high school. If you are waiting on test or grade results, we recommend you enroll in a GenEd course from different cluster or cluster area until you receive your results.
