SCHOLASTIC ELIGIBILITY CHANGES
Per a recent vote of NMAA member schools, three changes have been made to scholastic eligibility guidelines for the 2018-2019 school year. These are as follows:
1). Use of Semester Grades Only – Scholastic Eligibility will be determined by semester grades (6/9 week marking period grades will no longer be used).
2). NO F’s – A student must have a 2.0 GPA and NO F’s in order to be eligible to participate in activities/athletics. This is a change from the past where a student was allowed one F.
3). Summer Courses – Beginning in the summer of 2018, students may make-up multiple courses to attempt to gain eligibility.
