Athletic Training Accreditation Status
The University of Mount Union is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE). The program has been placed on probation as of February 19, 2016 by the CAATE, 6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, TX 78731-3101.
The program is currently non-compliant with Standard 11 based upon its three-year aggregated first-time Board Certification passing rate, which is below the 70% threshold at 64%. It is important to note, however, that the three-year aggregated overall passing rate for the program is 92%, and the program is compliant with all other CAATE standards for accreditation. See our test results.
The University is working diligently to implement program enhancements with the goal of improving the three-year aggregated first-time passing rate. As this work continues, current and future students enrolled in the program will not be impacted by the probation. Students in the athletic training program will continue to graduate with their majors in athletic training and be eligible to sit for the Board Certification exam during their last semester before graduation.
