Pre-Athletic Training


The Pre-Athletic Training program helps students fulfill the necessary prerequisite coursework for athletic training graduate programs.

The pre-professional advisor helps students develop a strategy for completing prerequisites, identifying an appropriate departmental major, and navigating the application process. Students select a major field of study (degree program) during their second or third semester of study. A faculty advisor is then assigned to help students develop a plan to meet Indiana State University’s degree requirements for that major.

Important: Students are encouraged to contact the department chair (Dr. John Pommier, 812-237-4065, for clarification about this pre-professional program.
