Forms must be completed and returned to the assigned administrator no later than one month after the end of the semester in which the waiver is requested. Allowable reasons to waive PE are physical disability, religious beliefs, directed athletics (current season only) and completion of full IB diploma. PE Waiver Form.
Student athletes who wish to participate in an athletic program at NCAA Division I or II institutions should start their certification process by the end of their junior year or early in their senior year. All prospective student athletes intending to enroll in an NCAA Division I or II institution for the first time on or after August 1, 2007, must complete the NCAA Amateurism Certification questionnaire. The NCAA has adopted new legislation that will require prospects that intend to enroll at NCAA Division I and Division II institutions to supply ACT or SAT scores to the Clearinghouse directly from the testing agencies. Additional information and the NCAA booklet, “Making Sure You are Eligible to Participate in College Sports” and a “Student Release Form” may be obtained on the NCAA website, or by calling the NCAA Clearinghouse at 877-262-1492. Some online courses are not accepted by the NCAA. See your counselor for details.
