10 New NCAA Division I Initial-Eligibility Standards

11 New Initial-Eligibility Standards for Practice and Athletics Aid  First, the current qualifier standard remains in place for freshmen to receive athletically related financial aid and practice in their first term in college.  Can continue to practice in their second term if they meet additional academic criteria during their first term.  Current standard is 16 core courses, meet the current sliding scale, minimum core-course GPA is

12 New Initial-Eligibility Standard for Competition  Increased standards in order to compete in the first year of college.  Increased “sliding scale.”  Increased minimum core GPA of in the 16 core courses currently required.  Additional core-course requirements as described on the next slide (i.e., 7/10 core). 12

13 Additional Core-Course Requirements  Successfully complete 10 core courses prior to seventh semester of high school.  Seven of the 10 core courses must be in English, math and natural/physical science.  These core courses (and grades) must be used in calculating the core-course GPA for purposes of meeting the sliding scale and GPA minimum.  SAs will not be able to retake the course senior year to improve their grade for NCAA purposes – 7/10 are “locked-in.”

14 Timeline for Implementing New Standards  Effective for SAs entering any collegiate institution full time on or after August 1,  These SAs are freshmen. 14

15 New Initial-Eligibility Standards - Three Possible Outcomes 1.Full qualifier = competition, athletics aid and practice in first year. 2.Academic redshirt = athletics aid in first year and practice in first regular term. 3.Nonqualifier = no athletics aid, practice or competition in first year.

16 Full Qualifiers  SAs must meet the following standards in order to compete, receive athletics aid and practice in first year of collegiate enrollment:  Obtain a core-course GPA/test score that meets the new sliding scale coordinates.  Obtain a minimum core-course GPA of in the 16 core courses currently required.  Meet core-course requirements described in the earlier slide (i.e., 7/10 core).

17 Academic Redshirt  Academic redshirt: SAs may receive athletics aid in their first year in college and may practice in first term. No competition.  Must meet the current sliding scale; 16 core; core GPA minimum.  Can earn practice in the second term by completing nine-semester or eight-quarter hours in the first term.

18 Nonqualifiers  No athletics aid, practice or competition in first year of collegiate enrollment.  SAs who do not meet the academic redshirt standard are nonqualifiers.

19 Modification of Core-Course GPA Calculation Core-Course GPA Calculation Ensure the integrity of the core-course GPA calculation and the core-course progression requirement by specifying that only the “best” 16 core courses shall be used for core-course GPA purposes, effective August 1, Sliding Scale Replace the adopted competition sliding scale with an intermediate sliding scale; OR Amend the 2016 effective date for the sliding scale changes. 19

20 Modification of Core-Course GPA Calculation (continued) * Proposed revision would apply to all PSAs. 20 Current LegislationProposed Revision “The core-curriculum GPA may be calculated using the SA’s 16 best grades from courses that meet the distribution requirements of the core curriculum. Additional core courses (beyond the 16 required) may be used to meet the core-curriculum GPA, provided the distribution requirements are met.” “The core-curriculum GPA may be calculated using the SA’s 16 best grades from courses that meet the distribution requirements of the core curriculum. Additional core courses (beyond the 16 required) may NOT be used to meet the core-curriculum GPA.*

21 Modification of Sliding Scale for Competition Intermediate Sliding Scale vs. Adopted Sliding Scale * Core-course GPA increase is relative to current scale and represents an approximation. It is anticipated that both core- course grade-point averages and test scores will increase in response to the new standards. ** Predicted first-year college GPA outcomes are based on data available for SAs held to current initial-eligibility standards and correspond with the academic profiles of those who meet the minimum competition standard. 21 Intermediate Sliding ScaleAdopted Sliding Scale minimum core-course GPA core-course GPA increase for any given test score* core-course GPA increase for any given test score* minimum predicted first-year college GPA** minimum predicted first-year college GPA**

24 NEW Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements

25 Rationale for New 2-4 Transfer Standards  GPA at two-year institution is best predictor of academic success.  Physical education activity courses have negative correlation to academic success.  75% of nonqualifiers currently transfer three or more credits.  33% currently transfer nine or more.  Completion of core academic courses predictive of better academic success at four-year institution with science as a strong predictor.

26 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements (2-4)  Requirements apply to SAs enrolling in college full time on or after August 1, 2012.

27 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Qualifiers  Requirements to compete in the first academic year at a Division I institution:  Attend two-year college full time for at least one semester or quarter.  Transfer average of at least 12-semester or quarter credit hours for each full-time term at the two-year college.  Have a GPA in all transferable hours. (New)  All SAs limited to two physical education activity hours from the two-year college to meet credit and GPA requirements. (NEW)

28 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Qualifiers (continued)  What if an SA does not meet these requirements?  A qualifier may receive athletics aid and practice in their first academic year, but not compete.

29 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Nonqualifier  Requirements to receive athletics aid, practice and compete in the first academic year at a Division I institution:  Attend two-year college full time for at least three semesters or four quarters.  Earn an Associate of Arts or equivalent degree. continued…

30 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Nonqualifier (continued)  Transfer at least 48-semester or 72-quarter credit hours, which include the following transferable credits:  Six semester/eight-quarter hours of English;  Three semester/four-quarter hours of math; and  Three semester/four-quarter hours of natural/physical science. (NEW)  Have a GPA in all transferable courses. (New) continued…

31 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Nonqualifier (continued)  All SAs are limited to two physical education activity courses from the two-year college to meet credit and GPA requirements. (New)

32 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Nonqualifier (continued)  What if an SA does not meet all of these requirements?  The SA may not receive athletics aid, practice or compete in their first academic year.

33 New Division I Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Nonqualifier (continued)  What if an SA meets all of the requirements except for the GPA of 2.500?  The SA could receive athletics aid in their first academic year and practice in their first semester or quarter with a GPA of or higher.  Practice for the remainder of the first academic year would be based on academic success at the Division I institution.

34 4-2-4 Transfer Requirements  Complete an average of at least 12 semester or quarter hours of transferable degree credit for each term of full- time attendance at the two-year college following transfer from the four-year college most recently attended.  Achieve a cumulative minimum GPA of  One calendar year has elapsed since the SA’s departure from the previous four-year college.  Graduate from the two-year college.

35 4-2-4 Transfer Requirements (continued)  A SA that was not a qualifier shall have satisfactorily completed:  Six-semesters or eight-quarter hours of transferable English credit;  Three-semester or four-quarter hours of transferable math credit; and  Three-semester or four-quarter hours of transferable natural/physical science credit.

36 Progress Toward Degree Don’t forget...all 2-4 transfers to Division I must also meet the Division I progress-toward-degree requirements:  40% of the degree must be completed by the start of the third year of full-time collegiate enrollment.  60% of the degree must be completed by the start of the fourth year of full-time collegiate enrollment.

37 Division II Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements

38 Current Division II Standards

40 Division II Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – Qualifiers (continued)  Qualifiers who do not meet the requirements set forth in NCAA Division I Bylaw , may practice and receive athletics aid (but may not compete) at the certifying institution during their first academic year of residence.

41 Division II Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – All Other Qualifiers, Partial Qualifiers, and Nonqualifiers  Attend the two-year college as a full-time SA for at least two semesters or three quarters; and  The SA has satisfied one of the following provisions:  Graduated from the two-year college, or  Completed an average of at least 12-semester or 12- quarter hours of transferable degree credit for each term of full-time enrollment.  Present a cumulative minimum GPA of

42 Division II Two-Year College Transfer Academic Requirements – All Other Qualifiers, Partial Qualifiers, and Nonqualifiers (continued)  Partial qualifiers and nonqualifers shall also present the following minimum hours of transferable credit:  Six-semester or eight-quarter hours of transferable English credit.  Three-semester or four-quarter hours of transferable math credit.  Remedial English and math courses may not be used to satisfy this requirement.
