Promoting Student-Athlete Wellness and Substance Abuse Prevention

Drug Testing

Student-athletes, cheerleaders, student managers and student athletic trainers are required to be educated about NCAA banned drugs and the products that may contain them. Students affiliated with the athletics department agree not to use banned drugs and to submit to institutional testing as outlined in campus policy.  Student-athletes agree to NCAA drug testing during championship events and to NCAA year-round testing as approved by their division.  The athletics department complies with NCAA drug testing administrative duties and assures that compliance forms are explained and signed. Effective testing for drug use relies on the existence and implementation of standards to ensure informed consent, confidentiality, integrity of the sample, reliable laboratory procedures, integrity of the report and specified sanctions associated with positive tests.  Policies should be uniform for all sports and the athletics department abides by its written policies.
