  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 14.1.8.1 and 14.1.8.2

  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 14.1.8.2.1.3 , 14.1.8.2.1.4 and 14.1.8.2.5

  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 14.01.2.1

  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 14.4.3.1–(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 14.4.3.1-(b)

  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 14.4.3.1-(a)

  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 14.4.3.4.4

  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 14.4.3.1.6

  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 14.4.3.1.2 and 14.4.3.1.2.1

  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!
