- A completed copy of the physical exam form filled out and signed by either the student's personal physician, registered nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or a Student Health Center physician.
- A signed copy of the technical standards form. Questions regarding the ability of a student to fulfill the technical standards will immediately be referred to the University Disability Services, Office of Student Educational Services.
- A signed Athletic Training Student Agreement indicating awareness of the requirements for, and demands of the Program in Athletic Training and athletic training profession.
- Proof of current CPR/AED certification. Freshman will initially receive this training as part of EXSC 1010, with certification good for 2 years. Juniors must complete recertification prior to starting training room / event coverage that year. It is the student's responsibility to maintain current CPR/First Aid Certification throughout the remainder of their time in the Program in Athletic Training.
Freshman students are required to complete 30 hours of observation time in the Marquette athletic training room prior to the start of their sophomore year.
Failure to comply with all of the retention standards may result in academic probation, dismissal from the program, and/or subsequent delay in graduation.
