The UTPB Athletic Training Education Program has initiated the “Voluntary Withdraw” process of the undergraduate program’s CAATE accreditation status. The program will no longer accept cohorts into the accredited program as of December 31, 2018. Students currently enrolled in the program will continue and graduate in their course of study with the same BOC exam qualification benefit.

The University will continue to offer a Bachelor of Athletic Training to prepare students for qualifications that will prepare the student for Athletic Trainer licensure in the state of Texas.
