Division II Progress Toward Degree

The division’s progress-toward-degree requirements are designed to guide student-athletes through their academic journey to graduation. The standards, effective Aug. 1, 2016, ensure student-athletes take the appropriate steps toward their degree, tackling everything from grade-point average to term-by-term and annual credit hour requirements.

When the new requirements take effect, student-athletes will need to meet them in order to remain eligible for athletics participation. Eligibility in Fall 2016 is based on coursework completed during the 2015-16 academic year.
