  2. Overview Basic requirements for practice/competition. Academic-year requirements. Progress-toward-graduation requirements. Best practices for filing progress-toward-degree waivers. Questions.

  3. Requirementsfor Practice/ Competition Practice: • Enrolled in full-time program of studies leading to a baccalaureate or equivalent degree. Competition: • Enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester or quarter hours, regardless of institution’s definition of full-time enrollment. NCAA Division I Bylaws and

  4. Eligibility for Competition - Exceptions Final semester/quarter. • Enrolled in courses necessary to complete degree requirements. Competition while enrolled in graduate program. • Enrolled in a full-time graduate program as defined by institution. Cooperative educational work experience. • Required: May participate if offered by the institution and is considered full time. • Not Required: Must be enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours, which may include the credit value of the co-op program at the certifying institution during the same term. Bylaws , and

  5. Good Academic Standing • Determined by the institution for all students. • August 9, 1995 interpretation: Definition of good academic standing applied to student-athletes shall be a standard at least as demanding as the minimum standard applied to all students in order to participate in extracurricular activities at that institution. Bylaws 14.01.2 and

  6. Progress Toward Degree • Designed to move SA toward graduation within five years of full-time collegiate enrollment. • Ensures SA is functioning as student during each academic year. • Exceptions and waivers are available. Bylaw 14.4.3

  7. Progress Toward Degree Academic year credit-hour requirements. • Six-hour requirement each term. • 18-/27-hour requirement each academic year. Progress-toward-graduation benchmarks. • 24-/36-hour requirement. • Percentage-of-degree requirements (40%/60%/80%). • GPA requirements (90%/95%/100%).

  8. Six-HourRequirement • Must complete a minimum of six-semester or six-quarter hours of academic credit in the previous full time regular academic term. • Does not apply to part-time terms. Bylaws–(c)

  9. 18-Hour/27-Hour Requirement • Must earn 18-semester or 27-quarter hours of academic credit during each regular academic year. • Cannot use summer hours to meet 18/27. • Intercession or “J” term hours during the academic year do count. • Certified before start of the institution's third semester or fourth quarter following the SA's initial full-time enrollment. Bylaw

  10. 24-/36-Hour Requirement • Must complete 24-semester or 36-quarter hours of academic credit before the start of the SA’s second year of collegiate enrollment. • Credits can be applicable to any degree. • Credits from summer prior to and summer after first year of collegiate enrollment may be included. • Credit-hour requirement is basis for percentage. Bylaw

  11. Remedial Courses • Restricted to counting six hours of remedial credits toward the credit hour requirements. • Only count toward the six-, 18- and 24-hour requirements if completed during the first academic year of enrollment. • Generally, these courses are not applicable toward the baccalaureate degree and would not be included in percentage-of-degree calculations. • If SA is required to take more than six hours of these types of courses, they may not be included in counting toward the credit hour requirements. • Bylaw

  12. Degree Credit • Must designate degree program by beginning of third year of collegiate enrollment (fifth semester or seventh quarter). • At the start of the third year of enrollment, all credits used to satisfy progress-toward-degree credit hour requirements (i.e., six-hour rule, 18/27) must count toward designated degree. Bylaw

  13. Transfer Student-Athletes • One semester = six hours of academic credit. • One academic year = 24/36 hours of academic credit. • Three semesters/four quarters = 30/42 hours of academic credit. • Four semesters/six quarters = six hours. • International transfers do not need to meet six-hour requirement. • Other progress-toward-degree and transfer legislation applies. Bylaws and

  14. Case Study – Joe Callaway Callaway is a men’s golf SA. He initially enrolled fall 2009. Is Callaway meeting credit-hour requirements for fall 2010?

  17. Percentage-of-Degree Calculation % of degree = Hours required for graduation based on designated degree Hours earned applicable to designated degree

  18. Percentage-of-Degree Calculation 73(degree hours completed) = 59.8% of degree 122(degree hours required) • This SA has not completed 60% of the degree. • Do NOT round up for progress-toward-degree requirements!

  19. Grade-Point-Average Requirements • Must meet GPA benchmarks before the start of each regular academic term. • Before the start of second year - 90%. • Before the start of third year - 95%. • Start of fourth year and beyond - 100%. • GPA requirement based on minimum GPA required for graduation. • Transfer students. • Applicable for two-year and four-year transfers who have completed an academic term in residence at the certifying institution.
