Drug Testing Procedures

  1. Only those persons authorized by the institution will be allowed in the collection room.
  2. When arriving to the collection room, the student-athlete will provide photo identification or a client representative will need to identify the student-athlete. The student-athlete will then print his or her name and arrival time on the Roster Sign-In Form.
  3. The student-athlete will select a Custody & Control Form (CCF) from a supply of such and work with the institutional collector to complete the necessary information before proceeding with the specimen collection process.
  4. The student-athlete will select a specimen collection beaker from a supply of such and will be escorted by the institutional collector (same gender) to the restroom to provide a specimen. The student-athlete will rinse his or her hands with water (no soap) and then dry their hands. Then the student-athlete will place a specimen barcode from the Custody & Control Form onto the beaker.
  5. The institutional collector will directly observe the furnishing of the urine specimen to assure the integrity of the specimen.
  6. The student-athlete will be responsible for keeping the collection beaker closed and controlled.
  7. Fluids and food given to student-athletes who have difficulty voiding must be from sealed containers (approved by the institutional collector), opened and consumed in the collection room. These items must be free of any other banned substances.
  8. If the specimen is incomplete, the student-athlete must remain in the collection room until the sample is completed. During this period, the student-athlete is responsible for keeping the collection beaker closed and controlled.
  9. If the specimen is incomplete and the student-athlete must leave the collection room for a reason approved by the institutional collector, the specimen must be discarded.
  10. Upon return to the collection room, the student-athlete will begin the collection procedure again.
  11. Once an adequate volume specimen is provided; the institutional collector will escort the student-athlete to the specimen processing table.
  12. The specimen processor will instruct the student-athlete to closely observe the specimen processing steps and will then measure the specific gravity.
  13. If the specimen has a specific gravity below 1.005, no value will be recorded on the CCF and the specimen will be discarded by the student-athlete with the institutional collector observing. The student-athlete must remain in the collection room until another specimen is provided. The student-athlete will provide another specimen.
  14. Once the specimen processor has determined the specimen has a specific gravity above 1.005 the sample will be processed and sent to the laboratory.
  15. If the laboratory determines that a student-athlete’s specimen is inadequate for analysis, at the client’s discretion, another specimen may be collected.
