Are there any extra costs associated with the athletic training program?

There are a few extra costs involved in being a part of the athletic training program. Some are optional and others are required:
  • All students will need to arrange their own transportation to and from their off-campus clinical experiences. These experiences are usually scheduled near the end of the program (junior and senior year). Some of the off-campus experiences are no more than a five-minute drive from campus, but some are in other towns and require a longer commute. Some students borrow a friend's car for these experiences and others arrange to have a car of their own.
  • All students are strongly encouraged to become student members of the National Athletic Trainers' Association. See the NATA's website for the latest dues costs.
  • Athletic training students typically attend the annual clinical symposium of the Great Lakes Athletic Trainers' Association every year. Although the program can sometimes assist with some of the funding for this, students often have to contribute approximately $100 to go on this trip. The conference is optional but strongly encouraged.
  • Expendable supplies needed for instruction (i.e. tape, gauze, splints, etc) are paid for by the program. Books and other non-expendable supplies (i.e. first aid kit, goniometer, stethescope, etc) are the responsibility of the student.
  • All students are provided a name badge and two uniform shirts. Extra clothing with the program logo may be purchased by the student.
