To be certified eligible to practice and compete (including weight training and conditioning activities), all student-athletes must complete a three-part process: academic clearance, compliance clearance, and medical clearance. In order to be medically cleared for eligibility certification, student-athletes must have the following on file in the sports medicine office: a medical history questionnaire, an approved physical examination, and health insurance information. Approval for participation is based on a thorough review of the student athlete's health status.
Each incoming walk-on student-athlete must show proof of a completed physical examination and medical insurance to the Indiana University Athletic Training staff to be cleared for participation. The pre-participation physical exam (PPE) is obtained at the walk-on's own expense. Please fill out the following MANDATORY form prior to completing your PPE with your physician.

Insurance Update Form
As permitted by NCAA regulations, Indiana University provides medical coverage for all injuries or illnesses sustained as a result of intercollegiate athletes directed practices, competitions, conditioning/weight training sessions and team travel. Coordination of benefits will utilize the parent's or student-athlete's own health insurance as the primary insurance coverage with Indiana University paying for excess expenses as a secondary provider.
Every student-athlete's insurance information must be on file in the athletic training room prior to the student-athlete's participation in any practice (including weight training and conditioning) or competition. Proof of insurance (a photocopy of the front and back of the insurance card) must be provided, and proof must be maintained that the insurance coverage is eligible for duration of the academic year for intercollegiate athletics participation.
Please fill out the following form to update your insurance information annually.
