NCAA DRUG TESTING POLICY
NCAA POLICY FOR SICKLE CELL STATUS NOTIFICATION
The NCAA has recently made it mandatory for its member institutions to know the sickle cell status for all of its student-athletes. This must take place prior to participation in any athletic
activity here at WSU. We urge you to have a Hemoglobin Electrophoresis test done prior to your arrival on campus and be able to produce proof of your test results. Failure to produce test results
will delay your ability to participate in athletics here at WSU. Test results may take up to two weeks to get back.
NCAA BANNED DRUGS AND MEDICAL EXCEPTIONS POLICY FOR ADHD
The NCAA has recently made changes to the requirements for the medical exceptions policy for those student-athletes taking prescription stimulants for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
(ADHD). Any student-athlete who is taking prescription stimulants for ADHD must have formal testing and medical documentation in place in order to be eligible. The medical testing can take up to
six months to complete so please refer to the following documents for further information:
Wichita State University administration, athletic department, and student-athletes recognize that drug abuse cannot be tolerated in the operation of or participation in intercollegiate athletics.
It is known that the illegal use of drugs poses a danger to the health and safety of the users and possibly people associated with a user, such as teammates. Drug abuse also damages the integrity
and reputation of all student-athletes, the institution, and the athletic department, and it undermines fairness in competition between individual student-athletes and between teams.
