Athletic Training (Undergraduate)

As of May 31, 2020, Erskine College is no longer offering an undergraduate degree program in athletic training. This program is being replaced with our Masters in Athletic Training Degree program as of August 1, 2020. For more information on the Erskine College MSAT program click here, and see the following statement about MSAT program accreditation.

Erskine College is currently seeking accreditation for their new Athletic Training program and is not accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE).  The institution will be submitting a self-study to begin the accreditation process on August 1, 2020. Submission of the self-study and completion of a site visit does not guarantee that the program will become accredited.  Students that graduate from the program prior to accreditation WILL NOT be eligible to sit for the credentialing examination for athletic trainers and will not be eligible for licensure in most states.

The following data pertains only to the Erskine College Athletic Training undergraduate program, which is no longer being offered as of May 1st, 2020.

BOC Results(Undergraduate)

The BOC exam is a comprehensive, computer-based consisting of 175 questions, and administered at testing centers across the U.S.  Passing the BOC Exam is a prerequisite for practicing as a Certified Athletic Trainer in the 48 states that regulate athletic training practice, including South Carolina.  To be eligible for the BOC exam, students must graduate with a degree in athletic training from a CAATE-accredited institution (or be in their final semester).  Seniors generally register to take the BOC Exam in the spring semester.  After passing the BOC Exam and completing the appropriate paperwork, graduates may use the ATC credential.
