NCAA DI Progress-Toward-Degree
Division I requires student-athletes to meet certain academic benchmarks each year to ensure they are progressing toward graduation. If a student-athlete does not meet these benchmarks they could be ineligible for competition.
Your academic advisor can help you plan out your courses, but you are responsible for completing the credits successfully.
If you are entering your second year of enrollment, you must have completed 24 semester/36 quarter hours.
If you are entering your third year of enrollment, make sure you have declared your major with the academic advisor in that department and you must have 40% of your degree requirements completed.
If you are entering your fourth year of enrollment, you must have 60% of their degree requirements completed.
If you are entering your fifth year of enrollment, you must have 80% of your degree requirements completed.
Other reminders – Remember!
- You must complete 18 semester/27 quarter hours of academic credit each year between the fall and spring terms!
- You must complete six semester/six quarter hours of academic credit during the preceding regular academic term (e.g., fall semester, winter quarter) in which you have been enrolled full-time.
- Football student-athletes must complete at least nine semester/eight quarter hours in the fall term to be eligible the following season.
- If you have questions on your progress-toward-degree requirements, contact your academic advisor or compliance office.
If you are thinking of transferring, in order to use the one-time transfer exception, you must be academically eligible and meeting these progress-toward-degree requirements.
