The College of Nursing and Health Sciences has implemented this two-step process to help ensure your success and to ensure that graduates of the program will leave Barry as qualified, competent professionals. The steps in this application process are outlined below.
Step One: Application to Barry University
To apply to Barry University, you must submit the following to the Office of Admissions:
- A completed undergraduate application. This application can be electronically submitted.
- Barry University has waived the online application fee for prospective undergraduate students. If you prefer to complete and submit a paper application, you must also include a nonrefundable $30 processing fee. Please make your check or money order payable to Barry University.
- Official high school transcripts and all college/university transcripts
- Official SAT I or ACT scores
If you are an international student whose first language is not English, you must also submit a TOEFL score. Educational records (transcripts, record of marks, school-leaving examinations) must be accompanied by certified English translations if in a language other than English.
Step Two: Clinical Program Requirements In Athletic Training
Students must be accepted into the clinical program in order to be considered candidates for graduation in athletic training. To satisfy the requirements of Barry University and the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), you must complete 1,200 hours of supervised practical in six continuous semesters of clinical study prior to applying for the Board of Certification (BOC) examination, in accordance with the standards set by Barry University, BOC, and CAATE. Clinical skills and internship courses may not be taken concurrently. All course requirements for certification by the BOC are included in the athletic training major and can be found at www.bocatc.org.
