Athletic Training

Bethel College is voluntarily withdrawing accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education for (CAATE) the Bachelor's of Science degree in athletic training. Students who entered this program for the Fall 2018 semester made up the last cohort to enter the program at Bethel College. The program will close following the graduation of the last students already enrolled in the program.

CAATE Accreditation SealThe Bethel College Athletic Training Program is currently on probation by the CAATE (6850 Austin Center Blvd., Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78731-3101), because the program has chosen to voluntarily withdraw its CAATE accreditation effective June 1, 2021. The program will remain on probation until the "Withdraw" is effective and the program is closed.
