PRE-PARTICIPATION CLEARANCES FOR VARSITY ATHLETES
All varsity athletes must undergo a review by the Student Health Service (SHS) to be cleared to participate in varsity athletics. Data for review includes: SHS Health Report Form completed by the student's primary care provider, a detailed medical history completed online through the athletic department and an on campus physical screening with athletic trainers and SHS prior to each school year.
STUDENT TEACHING CLEARANCES
Students must be cleared by the Student Health Service to participate in their student teaching assignment. The Student Teaching Office sends SHS a list of student teaching candidates prior to every semester. Students on these lists are notified by SHS several months in advance of the steps they need to take to complete the process and be cleared medically for student teaching. These steps usually include the gathering of information that is missing from their Student Health Center record. The missing information may include a Health Report completed their primary care provider, necessary immunization information, tuberculosis skin test and interim health history information. Once this information is received and determined to be acceptable, the Office for Student Teaching is notified the candidate is cleared to participate in student teaching.
