    New Student Athletes attending Indiana University

    To be 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:

    1. A completed medical history questionnaire.
      • Includes past medical history, immunization records, etc.
    2. An approved Physical Examination to be done by Indiana University Sports Medicine.
      • IU Sports Medicine will facilitate the completion of all Physical Examinations.
    3. A completed health insurance form and a copy of the front/back of insurance card.
      • As permitted by NCAA regulations, Indiana University provides medical coverage for all injuries or illnesses sustained as a result of intercollegiate athletics directed practices, competitions, conditioning/weight training sessions and team travel. The Indiana University Office of Insurance, Loss Control and Claims will utilize the parent's or student-athlete's health insurance as the primary insurance coverage with Indiana University paying for deductible and out-of-pocket excess expenses as a secondary provider.
