NCAA ELIGIBILITY UPDATE
For Division I Athletes
It is important to note that all seniors who graduate in May 2016 will be subject to the new Division 1 Initial-Eligibility Requirements entitled “Initial full-time collegiate enrollment on or after August 1, 2016.” Significant changes as follows:
· The first significant change for this year’s senior class is that ten (10) of the core courses must be completed before the seventh (this fall) semester; seven (7) of the 10 must be in English, math, or natural/physical science. Note that these courses will be “locked in” at the start of the seventh semester and cannot be repeated for GPA improvement to meet NCAA initial-eligibility requirements.
· The other significant change is a new NCAA Division 1 Sliding Scale (relation of ACT or SAT with the GPA).
For Division II Athletes
It is important to note that all juniors (class of 2017) and seniors (class of 2016) will be subject to the existing Division II Initial-Eligibility Eligibility Requirements. All freshman (class of 2019) and sophomores (class of 2018) will be subject to the new Division II Initial Eligibility Requirements.
