Students are evaluated in the following categories: (1) Academic Achievement (minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA) and (2) Clinical Experience Evaluations. Progression toward completion of program requirements is monitored by the student, the student’s academic advisor, and the Director of Undergraduate Athletic Training Education. A student falling below a cumulative MSU GPA of 2.5 at the end of a semester will be placed on probation for the following semester. A student on probation must attain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 at the end of that semester to return to good standing. A student who fails to meet the 2.5 GPA standard will be placed on final probation for the next semester. A student on final probation will be removed from the clinical assignment for the duration of the semester and must attain a 2.5 cumulative GPA at the end of that semester. Failure to meet this standard will result in dismissal from the program. No grade lower than a 2.0 will be accepted in any Athletic Training core course. Students may repeat an Athletic Training core course only once in their academic career. Students must maintain the following minimum scores on their clinical evaluations: First year students = 35; Second year students = 40; Third year students = 50. If a student scores below the minimum score, he/she will immediately be placed on probation. The student has until his/her next evaluation to achieve the minimum standard. If the student remains below the minimum standard, he/she will be suspended from the program for one semester. The student must then meet with the Advisory Board for re-admittance. Students must also maintain current certification in CPR, First Aid and the ORCBS Blood Borne Pathogens course throughout the duration of the program.
