Advising Student Athletes

Advising Student AthletesAdvising

In order to maintain eligibility to participate in NAIA events, student athletes need to be making adequate progress toward completion of their degrees, and they must maintain a minimum GPA as specified by the NAIA.  Please keep these important points in mind when advising student athletes.

1)     A student athlete must be enrolled at full-time status (a minimum of 12 hours) in order to be eligible to complete in the current semester.

2)     If a student athlete needs to drop a course, they MUST maintain a minimum enrollment of 12 hours to be eligible.  If the add/drop period (first two weeks) has passed, one way to maintain this enrollment is to register the student for a second-8 weeks night class.

3)     Student athletes are only permitted to take one night class per 8-week session.

4)     All schedule adjustments for student athletes must be approved by Dr. Tom Smith.
