Who will my professors be?
What Benefits Does the Program Provide?
Upon matriculation into the Health and Human Performance program, Piedmont University provides the following benefits to students in good academic and clinical standing:
- Professional Liability/Malpractice Insurance
- Opportunity to maintain First Aid and Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) Certification
- Faculty mentorship to prepare for the CSCS, CHES, and/or TSAC-F certification exams
I’m An Athlete—Can I Play Sports?
Absolutely! Students with NCAA-eligibility can participate in intercollegiate athletics. It may be difficult to complete all course and internship requirements if you play more than one sport, though.
How Much Does the Program Cost?
Even though Piedmont is a private University, our graduate tuition and room & board rates are comparable to many state institutions. Students take 36 credit hours and can choose to live either on or off campus.
What Other Program Costs Will I Have?
Upon matriculation and prior to engaging in the internship, students must provide the following at their own expense:
- Proof of current Health or Accident Insurance (front and back of each card; which must be maintained while in the program)
- Clothing – approximately $60-$100 (Depends on items and the amount the student wishes to purchase)
- Transportation – Students are responsible for their own transportation to internship sites.
Depending upon the internship placement, students may also be required to have:
- Successful background check with 10 Panel Drug Screening (approximately $100) using the advantagestudents.com service. (Students who have patient contact in agencies regulated by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Hospitals and Health Care Organizations (JACHO) and public schools must have a background check.)
- Additional site-specific paperwork, immunizations, or drug testing
- Site-specific training modules
