Pre-participation Exam Instructions for SSU Division II Athletes

Carefully read this before you make your appointment!

  • The purpose of the athletic physical is only to evaluate readiness for participation in SSU Intercollegiate Athletics. If you have unrelated medical concerns, we encourage you to make a separate appointment to discuss them further. 
  • To schedule an athletic physical, please complete the following:
    • On the SHC My Health Portal
    • Fill out information on Healthy Roster Portal, print out results, and bring to appointment. Without this paperwork printed and present at the appointment, we will have to reschedule.
    • Also bring with you the Pre-Participation paperwork from Athletics.  Please fill out as much of the information in the paperwork as possible before the appointment.  
    • For students under age 18, a Consent for Treatment of Minors form signed by parent/guardian can be done during check in at your appointment.
    • A signed Authorizations to Release Medical Information forms with providers names and addresses to obtain medical records or written clearances from provider(s) who cared for medical conditions associated with your athletic participation or that may require attention during your participation can be done during check in at your appointment.  Examples include orthopedic or other surgery; significant musculoskeletal, spinal, or head  injury; concussion; diabetes; asthma; treatment with ADD or ADHD medication; and mental health issues.  If you already have written clearances or copies of your record, turn those into the SHC with your paperwork in lieu of the signed release of records form. 
    • Documentation of your sickle cell status (due before participation begins). A positive test does not necessarily exclude the student athlete from participation. Read the Sickle Cell Trait information from the NCAA.
      • If you were born California on or after 2/26/90 you were likely screened for sickle cell at birth. You can access this information by requesting your Newborn Screen Results from the hospital you were born at or possibly through your newborn pediatrician's office.
      • If you don’t have a sickle cell result you may get a test through the SHC.  A screening sickle cell test via the SHC is $8.  If positive, a confirmatory test is an additional $14. 
    • The basic fee for an athletic physical is $50, which will be billed to your SeaWolf account. Additional charges are made for immunizations, additional lab tests, etc. 
  • The seasonal flu vaccine is strongly recommended for college athletes because of increased exposure risk. Infection can compromise athletic participation and academics, as well as readily spread to others.  The flu vaccine is available for free to SSU students at the SHC. It is usually available by mid-September of each year.
