Bounce Pass is a basketball student-athlete that is transferring to Ocean State University (OSU) this fall from a junior college. Included on Bounce’s transcript are two courses that are accepted by OSU if the student receives a grade of “C” or higher. Unfortunately Bounce received “D”s for both courses. Can OSU use the credits from these coursesto determine if he met NCAA transfer requirements?
No. NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52.3.1 states that credit hours for courses with grades not considered acceptable for transferable degree credit for all students at an institution shall not be counted in determining whether the transfer requirement for total number of hours is satisfied.
