Transfer - Associate in Science

Program Overview

Interested in athletic training? You can start and Delta. We have a transfer agreement in place with Saginaw Valley State University. Or, you can take courses toward your Associate of Science and work with other universities for the best transfer pathway to their program.

Athletic trainers improve functional outcomes and specialize in patient education to prevent injury and re-injury. To become a certified athletic trainer, you must graduate with a bachelors or master’s degree from an accredited professional athletic training education program and pass a comprehensive test administered by the Board of Certification (BOC).
