How the Clearance Process Works

On the dates listed above, students will first go to the ASB Office to purchase an ASB card, pay the “Pay to Play” fee, as well as "clear" any fines they may have. Students will then go to the Athletic Office where their clearance packet will be reviewed and collected.  PLEASE make sure all forms and signatures are complete, insurance information is clearly provided, and physical exam documentation is up to date. Previous semester grade checks will be conducted. Those with a failing grade from their previous semester will be placed on academic probation and will be ineligible for the first 5 weeks of the season.
