Step 2. Compose an essay.

Write an essay of no more than 500 words (typed in 12-point type with one-inch margins) that describes your educational plans, career objectives, commitment to your particular field of study, any research experience, your view of research and possible research interests, and personal goals.

You may submit your essay with your graduate school application or you can email your essay to graduate.studies@angelo.edu.

Step 3. Pay the application fee.

Domestic applicants will need to pay an application fee of $40. The application fee for international applicants is $50. The application fee can be paid online. We will also accept payment by cash, check, or money order. Checks will need to be made payable to “Angelo State University.”

Step 4. Order your academic transcripts.

We require transcripts from all colleges/universities attended, with the exception of Angelo State University. The application process can be completed with unofficial transcripts, though we highly recommend sending official transcripts. Transcripts delivered in a sealed envelope from the institution will be considered official. Transcripts sent by certified electronic exchange or an approved third party service will also be considered official. Please be aware that the overall GPA as posted to the transcript from the baccalaureate degree-awarding institution will be considered.

Transcripts can be sent to graduate.studies@angelo.edu or by mail to:

College of Graduate Studies and Research
ASU Station #11025
San Angelo, TX 76909-1025

Step 5. Complete a Self-Report Transcript form.

Email the completed form to bshsp@angelo.edu.

Step 6. Complete a Proof of Volunteer Hours form.

Applicants must complete at least 50 hours that includes two different areas of clinical practice. Applicants are allowed to use their facility’s hour verification form as long as it has both signature and license number of the supervising Athletic Trainer.

Email completed forms to bshsp@angelo.edu.

Step 7. Send three Letters of Reference to the College of Graduate Studies and Research.

Recommendations must include an Athletic Training/health-related, academic (instructor or academic advisor) and personal. Graduate Studies prefers to receive these by mail, but they can be done electronically if necessary. Electronically filled/signed recommendation forms may be sent to Graduate Studies at: graduate.studies@angelo.edu

All application materials and forms must be submitted to:

College of Graduate Studies and Research
ASU Station #11025
San Angelo, TX 76909-1025

If the applicant clears the Admission Stage I process, written notification from the College of Graduate Studies and Research will be sent to the applicant. Applicants must then wait for notification from the Master’s in Athletic Training Program in the Department of Health Science Professions as to whether they are moving on to Stage II.

Stage II

Stage II is the interview at Angelo State University. Once the applicant has received the letter indicating that Stage I has been completed, and an invitation from the Athletic Training Education Program in the Department of Health Science Professions for interview in either the fall or spring, the applicant must then send an additional $30 processing fee (check or money order made payable to Angelo State University Athletic Training Education Program) along with the Stage II Athletic Training Education Program Processing Form.

Up to 26 individuals will be recommended to the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research for admission into the MAT program. Only written notice from the Dean of the College of Graduate Studies and Research constitutes approval of admission.
