Options for NCAA DIII Student-Athletes who are close to graduation but still have eligibility remaining.

What are the options for an NCAA student-athlete who will have enough credits for their undergraduate degree by the end of the Fall 2019 but will still have eligibility remaining?

An athlete in this situation could:

  1. Graduate at the end of the Fall 2019 term and then continue on during Spring semester as an undergrad pursuing an additional minor or a second baccalaureate degree.
  2. Delay graduation until May or June of 2020 by taking less than 12 hours of coursework.
  3. Graduate at end of the Fall 2019 term and begin a graduate program during the Spring of 2020.

PLEASE NOTE: There are requirements for each of these options that are specific to the individual’s academic situation. To learn more, schedule a confidential consult to discuss your student-athlete’s situation with Rick Allen and learn whether or not one of these options is possible.
