Note(s): The current Master of Science in Athletic Training courses being entered into Curriculog are not new course proposals but actually course revision proposals. ATTR graduate courses are not currently showing in any system, including Curriculog. Due to time constraints it was decided and recommended all of the ATTR course revision proposals be entered as new course proposal. Entering the ATTR course revision proposals will be the mechanism used to trigger the ATTR MSAT courses to show in Curriculog, and therefore other institution systems. 

All ATTR MSAT courses have matriculated through the proper approval systems during the MSAT Program proposal. 

All of the ATTR course revision proposals are needed to reflect an update to the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) 2020 Standards for Professional Masters Programs. This set of standards became available after the MSAT Program proposal had matriculated through the new program proposal approval processes. 

There is documentation to demonstrate the approval system for the MSAT Program. The following timeline of approvals is reflected in existing documents
