Returning Upperclassmen

A Note Regarding Academic Year 2020-2021

The Online Medical History Questionnaire for upperclass athletes returning in the 2020-2021 academic year will be accessible by July 1, 2020. Beginning in 2020, we will also have four new online waivers and forms to complete. These are currently being developed in our online platform and will be ready when the annual questionnaire becomes available.

We will contact you through ARMS when these forms are ready to complete.

 

A repeat physical exam is NOT required for returning upperclassmen.
