Welcome to the Online Clearance Process Guide where you will find the directions to complete the clearance process to participate in athletics and activities.
Students MUST complete the clearance process by submitting both physical forms and the signed clearance letter in person at the Finance Office (Dawg House) or by uploading the 3 required forms onto the athleticclearance.com website. If your forms are uploaded, please email Ms. Peterson at firstname.lastname@example.org that your paperwork is ready to be reviewed. You will then be notified by email when the clearance is completed. Please DO NOT send your clearance forms by email.
The system will maintain your records so that when clearing for additional sports or in future years, you will only be required to update information. You can maintain multiple students with the same account.
