LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
The Master in Athletic Training (MAT) program at GVSU includes both didactic coursework and clinical experiences structured around a cohort of 24 students per year. The program is designed to engage students in collaborative assignments and projects, common intellectual experiences, a diverse learning environment, and community-based learning; in direct alignment with the University's core value of integrating liberal learning with professional development. Students will be required to complete collaborative projects within the curriculum and have an opportunity to experience becoming producers of research through their graduate project.
**ATCAS Special Note: ATCAS runs on cycles. In the first week of June, their system closes, performs program updates, and opens for the next academic cohort around June 27. Applicants should only submit applications for the current year they wish to apply. It is recommended that you start entering your information starting July 1 of the current year you are applying to. This will ensure only entering information once. Example: If wishing to apply by October 15, 2020 - start the application July 1, 2020.
**Due to COVID-19 shutdowns, the MAT faculty realize the challenges faced during this time and therefore pre-requisite courses taken during the Winter 2020 semester will be accepted as CR/NC.**
