Daily Compliance Item- 11.30.15- Eligibility for Postseason Bowl Game


Football student-athletes participating in a postseason bowl game must complete 6 hours of academic credit regardless of whether the bowl game takes place during the holiday break or during the institution’s next regular academic term (e.g., spring semester).

This is true. NCAA Bylaw states that to be eligible to compete in a postseason event (e.g., conference tournament, bowl game, National Invitation Tournament, NCAA championship) that occurs between regular terms (including summer) a student-athlete shall have satisfactorily completed six semester or six quarter hours of academic credit during the preceding regular academic term of full-time enrollment (see Bylaw (Adopted: 4/28/05 effective 8/1/05, Revised: 12/12/06, 1/8/07 effective 8/1/07, 4/26/07 effective 8/1/07, 7/31/14)
