For Student Athletes

As a student-athlete, we recognize that you have additional pressures and expectations based on the NCAA eligibility guidelines. We therefore provide all student-athletes with an additional support network comprised of their Faculty Advisor, Athletic Advisor, and the Athletics Department

Registration Guidelines Student-Athletes:

In-Season Student-Athletes:

  • In-season athletes should first meet with their Faculty Advisor to discuss what classes they should take toward their major and overall Caldwell degree.
  • These athletes should then meet with their Athletic Advisor to review the courses they’ve chosen with their Faculty Advisor and to ensure that there is minimal conflict with their game schedule. This meeting should happen during the week prior to registration.
  • During this meeting with their Athletic Advisor, student-athletes will register for their classes.
  • In-season student-athletes must obtain signatures from both their Faculty Advisor and their Athletic Advisor to add, drop, or withdraw from classes during the semester.

Non In-Season Student-Athletes:

  • After meeting with their Faculty Advisor, non in-season student-athletes will register online and according to earned credits, in the same manner as the rest of the student body.
  • After registration and up until the Add/Drop period, the Director of Advisement and the Athletics Department will monitor student-athlete schedules for NCAA eligibility purposes.
  • Non in-season student-athletes must obtain signatures from both their Faculty Advisor and their Athletic Advisor withdraw from classes during the semester

Student-athletes who are in season are each given a letter and attached game schedule to review with each of their instructors. Athletes must inform their instructors about the specific class meetings they anticipate missing due to their game schedule and discuss the options available to make up missed assignment/attendance.

Student-athletes MUST be enrolled in at least 12 credits in a semester to have athletic eligibility.

Assistance with organizational skills and time management issues unique to athletes is available through the Athletic Department and the Academic Success Center.
