Program Accreditation

Colorado Mesa University is currently seeking approval from the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) for the Master of Science in Athletic Training.  Such approval is expected, but cannot be guaranteed and Colorado Mesa University makes no guarantee of the approval of this program.  Students wishing to take graduate course work in Athletic Training may do so with the understanding that until such approval is obtained, no degree can by offered or sanctioned by the institution nor can the student sit to take the Board of Certification exam to become a certified athletic trainer.
