All incoming students need to have a college entrance physical and complete the Student Health Evaluation Forms before beginning classes at Coe.
Per Iowa law, all students are required to have an immunization record on file with Health Services prior to the first day of classes. Class registration for subsequent semesters will be held if an immunization record is not submitted.
For incoming students, the forms must be returned to Health Services by August 1. This can be done through the New-Student Forms Portal, or via mail (1220 First Ave. NE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52402), email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or fax (319.399.8269), or by bringing the forms to the clinic. It is recommended that you retain a copy of your health forms for your own records.

Student Athlete Medical Forms
Prior to participating on an athletic team at Coe College, student athletes must provide Athletic Training Services with medical information such as personal information, emergency contacts, medical history, medical alerts, health insurance and a copy of a physical examination with clearance to participate in intercollegiate athletics.
To expedite this process, Athletic Training Services utilizes online data entry via SportsWare, an online medical record system, where student athletes will need to enter their information.
Additionally, there are required forms for student athletes to review, complete and electronically sign. These forms are required annually and must be completed by August 1. The items below include:
- SportsWare Online Instructions: SportsWare Video Tutorial
- Recommended Athletic Physical Examination form — NCAA requires a physical examination for first-year and transfer students that has been conducted within the last six months of starting college.
- Under 18 year old release — to be completed if a student is under 18 at the time of completing the forms.
- ADD/ADHD Information — If the student had been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD these forms need to be completed and submitted to athletic training services.
Questions and inquiries about athletic physicals should be directed to the athletic department (email@example.com).
