This major guide is a list of all possible
major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, it’s designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major.
Admission to Athletic Training is competitive for a limited number of seats. Admission decisions are made once a year, in the spring semester, upon completion of the courses listed below.
To be eligible to apply for admission, students should complete the following:
1. Earn a grade of C or better in the following prerequisite courses: a college-level human anatomy course (BIO 290 or equivalent), a basic college-level athletic training course (i.e. ATEP 205), ATEP 206, and ATEP 291 (ATEP courses are not transferable from community colleges). Please Note:
Students who complete anatomy & physiology I and II at the community college will receive credit for BIO 290 and 270, however it is highly recommended that these courses be completed at JMU
. Students who transfer these courses in may be advised to retake BIO 290 at JMU.
