Sports Physicals & Travel Evaluations
The Rowan University Student Health Services (SHS) requires all incoming freshman and transfer students to submit a complete physical (within 1 year of enrollment) along with the other mandatory pre-enrollment health forms. The following types of physicals are offered to full or part time matriculated students currently enrolled in classes that have submitted their Pre-Enrollment Health Forms and Physical. SHS does not conduct physicals for employment or other non-university related functions. Students that make an appointment for a physical and do not show up or cancel their appointment will be charged a No Show Fee.
Sports Physicals - Please bring your completed Athletic Pre-Participation Health History and Athletic Authorization Form to your appointment. Forms should be completed in pen.
- Pre-Participation Sports Physicals
In partnership with the Athletics Department SHS conducts pre-participation sports physicals on all incoming freshman and transfers each summer. Students will be required to submit all mandatory pre-enrollment health forms before receiving this comprehensive sports physical. If the student is under the age of 18, a legal guardian must sign the required forms listed above. In addition, NCAA requires that all athletes also submit evidence of the following items which must be completed prior to the Pre-Participation Sports Physical:
There is no charge for the Pre-Participation Sports Physical if the student attends the scheduled clinic or makes an appointment for a physical prior to the clinic date. Each coach will communicate the scheduled clinic time with the student athlete. Contact the student’s coach for additional information. These clinics are usually held the last week in July for students entering in the fall and early January for students entering in the spring. Students will be charged for any Pre-Participation Sports Physical scheduled after the clinics.
- Sports Physical Clearance for Returning Athletes - Please bring your completed Athletic Pre-Participation Health History and Athletic Authorization Form to your appointment. Forms should be completed in pen.
Returning student athletes will be cleared by the SHS nursing staff unless there has been an injury requiring a targeted physical. Students are responsible to bring documentation of any medical clearances for injuries, surgeries or medical conditions. Clearance physicals clinics will be scheduled in the spring and summer at no cost to the student. If a student requires clearance outside of the scheduled clinics there will be a charge.
Athletic Trainer Physicals - Please bring your completed Athletic Pre-Participation Health History and Athletic Authorization Form to your appointment. Forms should be completed in pen.
Athletic Training students must meet the same requirements as the listed above for the Pre-Participation Sported Physical. This physical must be scheduled.
