Athletic Eligibility

NMU SoccerFor athletic eligibility purposes, all athletes are required to carry a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester and maintain satisfactory progress. Satisfactory progress is based upon satisfactory completion of courses in an athlete’s designated program, as well as his or her overall academic record.

At the beginning of and beyond their fifth semester or third year of enrollment, all athletes are required to designate a program of study leading toward a specific baccalaureate degree and carry a minimum of 12 credit hours in a designated program of study leading toward a specific degree.  If an athlete designates a program of study leading toward a specific baccalaureate degree prior to their fifth semester or third year of  enrollment, they are required to abide by the same rules governing the third year athlete.

Please inform your adviser that you are an athlete and must abide by this rule. Failure to do so may cause you to lose your academic eligibility. Your adviser will complete the academic adviser affirmation form. It is your responsibility to hand-carry this form to the Registrar's Office, 2202 C.B. Hedgcock.
