Advising for Future Athletic Training Students

Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned Academic Advisor when scheduling coursework.


Academic Advising plays an integral role in student success. Each Exercise Science Future Athletic Training Program Student will be assigned to a Movement Science Combined Degree (Dr. Christina BeaudoinDr. Chris Dondzila, or Dr. Colleen Lewis) Faculty Advisor. Once admitted, the assigned Faculty Advisor will change from Movement Science Faculty Advisor to an Athletic Training Program Faculty.  Students not currently assigned an Athletic Training Faculty advisor are recommended to request a meeting with AT Faculty to ensure pre-MAT course requirements are met. 


  1. Please anticipate your advising needs and make appointments early. Faculty schedules fill up quickly, especially during peak times such as prior to registration. Look to meet your faculty advisor during open office hours (posted online under the Movement Science faculty directory and on each faculty member’s office door).
  2. Feel free to discuss academic and any non-academic issues relevant to your education with your advisor. The more we know, the better able we are to determine appropriate academic plans to meet your goals. 
  3. Be prepared and come with written questions.
  4. If you wish to discuss scheduling, bring a tentative schedule and your mypath printout created by yourself to the advising appointment.
