MSAT Retention Criteria and Policy
Academic Retention Criteria
MSAT students’ academic and clinical progress will be closely monitored each semester by the AT Program Director and AT Clinical Education Coordinator.
In order to remain in the MSAT program, students must*:
- Maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher
- Maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher in athletic training core courses
- Adhere to the NATA Code of Ethics and to the MSAT Policies and Procedure
*Students who fail to meet the retention criteria will be placed on probation in the MSAT program for one semester. If standards are not met by the end of the probationary period, the student will be dismissed from the program. Students who earn a grade of C or lower in any required course must repeat that course and earn a grade of B or higher in order to remain in the program. Failure to repeat the course, or earn a grade of B or better, will result in dismissal from the program.
Expected Professional Behavior
Students are expected to adhere to the NATA Code of Ethics and to behave professionaly, as described in the MSAT Policies and Procedures Manual.
As there are many different circumstances that may cause a student to withdraw from courses, students are encouraged to consult with the MSAT Graduate Advisor/Program Director (Dr. Krawietz) before withdrawal so that the student’s decision to withdraw is fully understood with regards to their current and potential future status in the UTA MSAT program. In all cases, the UTA MSAT program will follow UTA policies and procedures concerning withdrawal, available for review by clicking or tapping here.
