A completed Adult ADHD Evaluation Form is required for compliance with this new legislation. This evaluation form is to be completed by the student-athlete’s prescribing physician and can be accessed online at


This document assists institutions to ensure adequate medical records are on file for student-athletes diagnosed with ADHD/ADD in order to request a “medical exception” in the event of a positive finding during NCAA drug testing

The completed Adult ADHD Evaluation Form is to be returned to the UMBC Sports Medicine staff during screening.
