Policy regarding intercollegiate athletics involvement by BSU students
All BSU student-athletes must be a full time undergraduate student; maintain a minimum of 12 credit hours or the equivalent each semester; achieve a minimum grade point average of 2.0; pass 24 credit hours (normal progress rule) or the equivalent in an academic year as a full-time student; sign the NCAA student-athlete statement concerning eligibility, Student's Privacy Rights Concerning Education Records consent and drug testing consent.
Student-athletes are required to undergo a physical examination by a physician and complete a medical history form prior to competing on intercollegiate teams. Specific information on these exams can be obtained either from the director of athletics or from the head athletic trainer.
In addition, there are very specific requirements that must be met by transfer students from other four-year institutions, transfer students from two-year or junior colleges and students who have been involved in multiple transfers. For information please confer with the director of athletics or the associate athletics director for compliance.
On a case-by-case basis, a student enrolled in a part-time academic course load as an accommodation to a documented disability will not be excluded from participating in athletic programs. The student should contact the associate athletics director for Compliance to discuss the petition and appeal process.
