A. True
B. False

The answer is A with conditions. NCAA Staff Interpretation- 4/10/15- Core-Course Grade-Point Average Calculation for a Prospective Student-Athlete who Initially Enrolls Full Time On or After August 1, 2016 (I)– states that the academic certification for a prospective student-athlete who initially enrolls full time in a collegiate institution on or after August 1, 2016, may include more than 16 core-course units (i.e., 16.01 to 16.99), provided partial credit (e.g., 0.25, 0.34, 0.5, 0.67) is necessary to meet the core-course distribution requirements.
