I completed a physical for sports. Can I submit this as my entrance physical?

Your sports physical can count as your entrance physical if it has all the required information. You should also upload a copy of your immunization record and your sports physical. Please note that the athletic department does not submit sports physicals to SHS. Even if you have already submitted your physical to athletics, you must still upload a copy to your Online Health Portal.
