Welcome to the A.T. Still University family! It is an exciting time to be part of this dynamic, growing University, and I am pleased you have chosen to pursue your dreams with us.

At ATSU you will experience the benefits of rural and urban perspectives on healthcare, a commitment to whole person and whole community health, a family approach to nurturing student learning and personal growth, interprofessional experiences, and an inclusive and collaborative environment.
May your time at ATSU be filled with professional success and a great sense of accomplishment as you learn to become tomorrow’s healers and healthcare leaders.
Yours in service,

The A.T. Still University (ATSU) Catalog provides students with important information about policies, procedures, requirements, and services. Students are required to read, understand, and adhere to the provisions of the Catalog. An updated version of the Catalog is published each academic year. The yearly update (and any subsequent updates during the academic year) supersedes all prior editions and provides the latest rules, policies and procedures to create the most up-to-date student reference.
The provisions of the Catalog do not constitute an irrevocable contract between ATSU and its students since plans, policies, requirements, and services may be altered from time to time. Therefore, ATSU reserves the right to amend modify, add, or delete information within the Catalog at any time without advance notice. The content, assessment methods, grading scale, and method of delivery of courses may sometimes need to be modified from what is stated in this Catalog and courses may even be delayed or cancelled.
Students are also required to thoroughly review the University Student Handbook for important additional policies, procedures, requirements, and services.
A.T. Still University’s policy prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation (ATSU Policy #90-210), may be found in its entirety within the ATSU Policies section.
The University complies with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989.
