 ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

  • Step 1: Enroll & Advise


    Enroll at Weber State University

    Weber State University (WSU) is an open-enrollment university, you can apply anytime by visiting the link above. 

    Don't forget, once a Wildcat always a Wildcat. If you've taken a WSU course in the past (including concurrently) please visit Return to Weber for more information. 

    Once you are admitted to WSU, meet with our College Advisement Office to discuss our program and require-ments. 

    Advising Information 

    After a student enrolls at WSU, they should declare Rehabiliation Sciences (RHS) as their major before proceeding to step 2. Students should contact Margarita Lopez at margaritalopez@weber.edu, once they are officially ready to decalre RHS as their major.

    PLEASE NOTE: In May 2021 the Athletic Therapy major was renamed Rehabilitation Sciences. Therefore, any undeclared students who are interested in this degree field should declare Rehabilitation Sciences as their major and pursue this new program of study. 

    Students who declared Athletic Therapy as their ma-jor prior to May 2021 will be allowed to continue the former curriculum of the Athletic Therapy program. These students will have until Summer 2025 to fulfill the graduation requirements. After that time, the Athletic Therapy program will expire and remaining Athletic Therapy majors will automatically be transitioned to Rehabilitation Sciences majors.
