ATCAS Participating Programs and Eligibility


Many accredited athletic training programs participate in ATCAS each cycle. These programs are accredited by CAATE. The athletic training programs that do not participate in ATCAS handle their application processes separately.

Developing Programs

Programs that use ATCAS and have applied for but not yet received accreditation are considered "developing" programs. If you are applying to a developing program, please be aware that ATCAS does not offer application refunds in the event your program fails to obtain accreditation.

Program Eligibility

If you have questions about your eligibility to apply to a program, contact the program directly.

Program Deadline Requirements

Deadlines are determined by each participating program, not ATCAS. To view a program's deadline date, click Add Program and review the information under Deadline. You can submit your application up until 11:59 PM ET on the deadline date.

In addition to determining deadlines, each participating program sets requirements for their deadlines. Programs may have additional requirements, including receipt of test scores, supplemental applications, etc. If you have questions about a program's requirements, contact the program directly.
