4 Agenda  Current Basic Eligibility Requirements  Full-time Enrollment  Progress-Toward-Degree Requirements  New Academic Standards  Initial Eligibility  Two-year Transfers  Recent Interpretations

5 Basic Eligibility Requirements

6 Requirements for 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.

7 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.

8 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.

9 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.

10 Progress Toward Degree Academic year credit-hour requirements.  Six-hour requirement each term.  Nine-/Eight-hour requirement during the fall term and APR eligibility point (football).  18-/27-hour requirement each academic year.

11 Progress Toward Degree Progress-toward-graduation benchmarks.  24-/36-hour requirement.  Percentage-of-degree requirements (40%/60%/80%).  GPA requirements (9 0%/95%/100%).

12 Six-Hour Requirement  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.

13 Nine-Hour Requirement  Football student-athletes must complete a minimum of nine-semester or eight-quarter hours of academic credit each fall term and must receive the APR eligibility point for the fall term.  A student-athlete who fails to meet either requirement is not eligible to compete in the first four contests in the following playing season.

14 Nine-Hour Requirement  If the student-athlete subsequently earns 27-semester or 40-quarter hours of academic credit before the beginning of the next fall term, the student-athlete may regain eligibility to compete in the third and fourth contests of the playing season.  A student-athlete in his or her initial year of full-time collegiate enrollment may use credit hours earned during summer terms.  One-time exception to regain eligibility in all four contests.

15 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.

16 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.

17 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.

18 Degree Credit  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.

19 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.

20 Progress Toward Graduation  24-/36-hour requirement.  Must complete the following percentage-of-degree requirements:  Before start of third year - 40%.  Before start of fourth year - 60%.  Before start of fifth year - 80%.  Based on SA’s full-time terms of enrollment.

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

22 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.

23 Grade-Point-Average Requirements  Transfer students.  Applicable for two-year and four-year transfers who have completed an academic term in residence at the certifying institution.

24 Baseball Eligibility  Must meet all progress-toward-degree benchmarks at the beginning of the institution’s fall term.  Not eligible for the remainder of the academic year.  No opportunity to “get well.”

25 New Initial Eligibility Standards

26 Timeline for Implementing New Initial-Eligibility Standards  New initial-eligibility standards are effective for students entering any collegiate institution full time on or after August 1, 2016.

27 New Initial-Eligibility Standards: Three Possible Outcomes 1.Full qualifier = athletics aid, practice and competition in first year. 2.Academic redshirt = athletics aid in first year, practice in first regular term, and potential to practice in subsequent regular term(s) of first year. 3.Nonqualifier = no athletics aid, practice or competition in first year.

28 Division I Full Qualifier Students will need to meet the following requirements to receive athletics aid, practice AND compete during the first year:  16 core courses.  Minimum required core-course GPA of in the 16 core courses.  10 core courses must be completed prior to 7 th semester.  7 of the 10 core courses must be in English, math and/or natural or physical science.  Standardized test score that corresponds with the core-course GPA on the increased sliding scale.

29 Division I Full Qualifier To compete during the first year of collegiate enrollment, students must:  Obtain a corresponding core-course GPA and test score on increased sliding scale.  New sliding scale requires a core-course GPA approximately.500 units higher than the current scale.  Examples of coordinates are:  core-course GPA requires 900 SAT or 75 sum ACT.  core-course GPA requires 820 SAT or 68 sum ACT.  core-course GPA requires 640 SAT or 53 sum ACT.

30 Division I Academic Redshirt Students will need to meet the following requirements in order to receive athletics aid and practice during the first year:  16 core courses.  Minimum required core-course GPA of in 16 core courses.  Standardized test score that corresponds with the core- course GPA on the academic redshirt sliding scale.

31 Division I Academic Redshirt To receive athletics aid and practice during the first year of collegiate enrollment, students must:  Obtain a corresponding core-course GPA and test score on the academic redshirt sliding scale.  Examples of coordinates are:  core-course GPA requires 900 SAT or 75 sum ACT.  core-course GPA requires 820 SAT or 68 sum ACT.  core-course GPA requires 640 SAT or 53 sum ACT.

32 Academic Redshirt: Requirements for Athletics Aid and Practice  If a college-bound student-athlete meets these requirements, he/she can receive an athletics scholarship during his/her first year at an NCAA Division I college or university.  If he/she meets these requirements, he/she can practice during his/her first term (e.g., semester, quarter) at a Division I college or university.  In order to continue to practice after the first semester/quarter, the student must successfully complete nine-semester/eight-quarter hours each term.

33 What If A Student Does Not Meet Either Set of Requirements? If a college-bound student does not meet either set of requirements, he/she will be certified as a nonqualifier. A nonqualifier:  Cannot receive athletics aid during the first year at an NCAA Division I college or university.  Cannot practice or compete during the first year at a Division I college or university.

34 Two-Year College Transfer Standards Academics as a First Expectation

35 Timeline for Implementing New Standards  New two-year college transfer requirements become effective for students initially enrolling full time in any college on or after August 1, 2012.

36 Increased Standards Two-year college transfers must:  Must have a or better transferable GPA.  An increase from the requirement in place for those who initially enrolled full-time in collegiate institution before August 1,  May use a maximum of two physical education activity credits in ALL sports.  Previously applied to men’s basketball transfers only.  Must complete core curriculum (6 credits English, 3 credits math and 3 credits science) – nonqualifiers only.

37 Educational Outreach Efforts Academics as a First Expectation

38 Education and Outreach Objective: Educate parties impacted by initial eligibility and two- year transfer academic standards through a variety of methods. Target Audiences:  Prospective student-athletes and parents.  High school administrators.  Two-year college administrators.  Coaches (high school, club, amateur team).  Coaches associations.  Sport governing bodies.  Professional associations.  General public.

39 Education and Outreach  On-line outreach (website, social media).  Targeted outreach to impacted groups of prospective student- athletes (professional organizations, major events, sport camps and events, targeted regional and state education).  Public awareness (ad agency, partner coaches and conferences, print adds, high school tv, radio and social media outlets).  Corporate champion engagement (EA game, partnership opportunities, use of Turner and ESPN on-air talent).  Traditional methods of outreach.

40 Recent Eligibility Related Interpretations

41 Nontraditional Course Credit From An Institution Without Traditional Academic Terms  The assessment of whether nontraditional course credit from an institution without traditional academic terms is considered credit from an academic-year course, or a summer course is based on the academic calendar of the two-year institution most recently attended by the student- athlete.

42 Nontraditional Course Credit From An Institution Without Traditional Academic Terms  If a student-athlete begins a nontraditional course after the two-year college's spring commencement exercises, the course should be considered summer credit, regardless of how it is classified by the offering institution.  If a student-athlete begins a nontraditional course before the two-year college's spring commencement exercises but completes the course after the commencement exercises, the course should be considered summer credit.

43 Nonqualifier Who Received a Fully Approved Initial-Eligibility Waiver A nonqualifier who previously received a fully approved initial-eligibility waiver (e.g., obvious waiver, automatic waiver, waiver approved by NCAA staff) to permit athletically related financial aid, practice and competition in the initial year of full-time collegiate enrollment is considered a qualifier for purposes of the application of the two-year college transfer requirements.
