Student Athlete Handbook

Eligibility Requirements

At the campus college locations only full-time students (except nondegree) are eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletic contests. Exceptions to full-time status may also be made for associate degree students during their final semester if they need less than twelve credits to meet their graduation requirements. If a student-athlete drops below full-time status any time during the semester (except as noted above) that student will be immediately ineligible.

A student-athlete from a campus location other than University Park shall represent the University in an intercollegiate athletic contest only if the student has acquired the designated number of credits at the end of each appropriate semester (in residence) as follows:

After Semester in Residence Minimum Number of Credits Required
1 9
