Academic Eligibility

Paper Division I Academic Eligibility Requirements

NCAA guidelines require student-athletes to meet certain academic requirements to remain eligible. There are three general principles under which these guidelines fall:

  1. Student-Athletes must maintain full-time status: Student-athletes must be enrolled in a minimum full-time program of studies leading toward a baccalaureate degree. Full-time status at Boise State University is defined as being enrolled in twelve credit hours per semester. If you have already completed a baccalaureate degree, and you have not yet exhausted your NCAA eligibility, in order to remain eligible you are required to be enrolled full-time in a second baccalaureate degree program or in a full-time graduate degree program. Full-time status at Boise State University in a graduate degree program is defined as being enrolled in nine credit hours per semester.
  2. Student-athletes must pass a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester: Student-athletes are required to pass at least 6 credit hours each semester to be eligible for competition during the following semester.
  3. Student-athletes must meet certain progress towards degree requirements: To remain academically eligible a student-athletes must make specified progress toward his or her degree. Progress toward degree requirements generally consist of three areas. First, a student-athlete must satisfactorily complete 24 semester hours at Boise State University prior to the start of the beginning of his or her third semester following the student-athlete's initial, full-time enrollment. Next, a student-athlete must complete 18 semester hours over the course of an two regular semesters (i.e. fall & spring) since the beginning of Boise State University's fall term. For student-athletes who enter at midyear, or student-athletes who have been granted an exception, the 18 hours must have been earned in the student-athlete's previous two semesters. Finally, a student-athlete must declare a major prior to his or her fifth semester of collegiate enrollment and must make progress toward that specified degree as follows:
    • 40% of degree requirements must be completed before the fifth semester of enrollment (excluding summer semester enrollment).
    • 60% of degree requirements must be completed before the seventh semester of enrollment (excluding summer semester enrollment).
    • 80% of degree requirements must be completed before the ninth semester of enrollment (excluding summer semester enrollment).
