UIL stands for University Interscholastic League “No Pass/No Play” Includes all extracurricular activities (examples: field trips, contests, games, concerts) UIL works this way: Failing grades earned on report cards cause a student to be ineligible Grades earned on progress reports can regain eligibility, but will never cause ineligibility Incompletes also make you ineligible until the grade is entered and confirmed
