Special Policies

• Due to the complexity of the Program, students accepted into the professional phase of the Program are not permitted to student teach or other activities that are in direct conflict with program assignments. Schedules can be developed for a student to participate in varsity sports for four years and complete Program requirements. However, it would take a minimum of five years to complete this plan.

• All transfer students must meet with the Program Director to determine their placement status. Transfer students wishing to transfer courses intended to fulfill specific Athletic Training course requirements must have those courses evaluated by the Program Director. Any such course must assess all the same competencies in the course offered by Kean University. General Education courses will be evaluated by the Office of the Dean of the College of Education. Clinical experiences will also be reviewed by the Program Director. All clinical experiences submitted for review must be documented and must have been under the direct supervision of an BOC Certified Athletic Trainer. As stated in the undergraduate catalog, a minimum of 32 degree credits including, one- half of the major requirements, must be earned at Kean.

• All policies and requirements are subject to change as indicated in the Kean University Undergraduate Catalog.
