CORE REQUIREMENTS FOR COLLEGE ADMISSION It should be noted that the minimum requirements for a high school diploma do not necessarily meet the entrance requirements for post high school education.

Students who do not pass 2.5 credits are ineligible for the entire next grading period. If the age of 19 is attained on or after August 1, the athlete is eligible to participate through the school year. An athlete has only eight semesters of eligibility, counting ninth grade, regardless of whether he/she has participated in athletics. Summer school credits do not pertain to athletic eligibility.
