9/5/08 - Full time enrollment

Our first Tip of the Week of the 2008-09 year is here...

During the first week of class, student-athletes have been able to practice, but not compete, while only enrolled part time. After that first week, beginning on Monday, September 8th, all student-athletes must be enrolled full time to continue to do either/both - practice and compete. We will keep you informed of those student-athletes that need to add any classes to their schedule to compete either this weekend or as we move into next week. Please remind your student-athletes that they must maintain a minimum 12 hours of credits in order to be eligible to continue to practice and compete after the first week of classes.

Please review the below information and let us know if you have any questions.

Donna Exception -- Practice during First Week of Class

A student-athlete may practice, but may not compete, during the institution's first five days of classes if the student-athlete is enrolled in less than a minimum full-time program of studies, provided the student is otherwise eligible under all institutional, conference and NCAA requirements.

To be eligible for competition, a student-athlete shall be enrolled in at least a minimum full-time program of studies leading to a baccalaureate or equivalent degree, which shall not be less than 12 semester or quarter hours.(Revised: 6/1/07)
