Applicants to the Athletic Therapy Major will enter the program at the third year level after successful completion of listed prerequisites, and selection using quantitative criteria. Admission to the Major is limited to ten students each year. Applicants from outside Kinesiology must also meet the admission criteria for admission to the Faculty.
Since 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents) of this degree are Mount Royal University courses, a maximum of 30 additional units (5.0 full-course equivalents) of transfer credit may be counted towards the degree (see Transfer of Credit from Other Institutions in section 3.2).
The following requirements must be met and will be used as criteria in determining the most suitable candidates for admission and registration in the program:
1. Successful completion of 48 or more units (8.0 full-course equivalents). The last 24 units (4.0 full-course equivalents) must have been completed at the University of Calgary.
2. A minimum GPA of 3.00 over the most recent course work to a maximum of 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents) (University of Calgary courses and/or transferable courses taken at other institutions). All grades within a term will be included except where the number of courses taken within a term exceeds that required to fulfill (to a maximum of) 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents), in which case the highest grades will be used.
