Transfer Students

WJU ATP Transfer Policy
Students wishing to transfer to the Wheeling Jesuit University AT Program must contact the Athletic Training Program Director early in the recruiting and admission process. Transfer admission is judged individually, case-by-case. In addition to the University's policies, transfer students should meet the following eligibility requirements:

  1. Transfer students from within or outside of WJU must complete the same pre- requisites and pre-professional phase experiences as all other students prior to admittance to the program. Course requirements include the following WJU courses or their equivalents:
    • BIO 128, 129: Anatomy & Physiology I and II
    • PSY 110: General Psychology
    Equivalent courses from other institutions must be officially accepted by the University and by the respective department's Chair. Students must have received at least a "C" or better for the course(s) to be accepted.
  2. Transfer students must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.80.
  3. Athletic Training observation hours are also expected but the overall hour requirement will be evaluated by the Clinical Education Coordinator and the Program Director on a case-by-case basis.
If a student is transferring from another CAATE accredited AT Program, AT courses from the previous institution may be considered acceptable equivalents to WJU AT courses. This is at the discretion of the Program Director and will require the submission of syllabi that includes a course description and objectives. Determination of the student's grade level at the time of transferring is at the discretion of the Program Director.

If a transfer student should be admitted, he or she will be required to complete a minimum of four semesters of clinical experiences at WJU regardless of the number of didactic class hours that transfer. This essentially allows the student to transfer as a first semester junior at the highest level. Thus, transfer credit is prohibited for clinical experiences and clinical practicums at the junior or senior level. If a student transfers in at a lower level than the above mentioned, he or she will be required to complete sophomore level practicum courses as well.
