Reason for Policy
Universities competing in NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletics provide an integrated environment focusing on academic success while offering a competitive athletics environment. Division III rules minimize potential conflicts between athletics and academics and focus on regional in-season and conference play. Under National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division III rules, satisfactory academic progress towards the degree is determined by each member institution. The Intercollegiate Athletic Eligibility Policy defines academic eligibility for intercollegiate athletes at UMN Morris.
There are no procedures associated with this policy.
