For Varsity Athletes

Where can I get a Sickle Cell Trait Waiver Form?

If you plan to play a varsity sport, MIT and the NCAA recommend that you get tested for sickle cell trait. However, the Sickle Cell Trait Waiver Form is not part of the Student Medical Report Form; rather, it comes from the DAPER (MIT’s Department of Athletics, Physical Education and Recreation).

If you are currently on the varsity roster for an athletic team at MIT, you should receive an email with instructions for completing the eligibility clearance process. If you are not currently on a varsity roster but want to try out for a team, you’ll need to contact the coach associated with that sport. More information is available on DAPER’S Compliance & Eligibility Homepage.
