The Pre-Athletic Training program provides guidance on courses, experiential activities, and competencies for students that are preparing to be competitive applicants to graduate athletic training programs after completing their Bachelor's degree at James Madison University. The Pre-AT program is a minor that students complete as part of their baccalaureate degree.


PPH Advising has developed requirements for the Pre-Athletic Training minor based on a survey of 60 Athletic Training Education Programs in 16 states (CT, DE, FL, GA, MA, MD, ME, NC, NH, NJ, NY, PA, SC, TN, VA and WV). Admissions committees for AT programs will use your academic success in these courses as a metric of your ability to achieve success in AT school.

If you have credit for any of the following courses by earning Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), Cambridge International Exam (CIE), community college credit, or departmental test credit, please read the Non-JMU Coursework for Pre-Requisite Coursework.
