  • Download the “Student-Athlete Physical” form if you are obtaining a physical from a physician while at home over the summer.
    • PHYSICALS:  Similar to previous years, we urge you to obtain your general medical physical at home prior to coming to campus.  This will greatly cut down on your wait time when we perform our orthopedic physicals once you arrive to campus in the fall.
