n The addition of transferable degree credit in a 
  natural/physical science. 
n Establishing a limit on the number of physical 
  education activity courses that may be used to 
  certify the transferable degree credit of a two-year 
  college transfer.  
n Establishing a grade-point average for access to 
  practice and athletically related financial aid and a 
  separate grade-point average for access to 
  practice, athletically related financial aid and 
  competition.

    New Initial-Eligibility Standard continued
nPSAs must meet the following standard in order to compete in the first 
 academic year:
 o Obtain a GPA/test score average that is set at approximately one-half of a 
   standard deviation below the national student body mean.  This 
   represents an increase from the current one standard deviation below the 
   national student mean.  The new sliding scale requires a high school core 
   GPA to be approximately 0.5 GPA units higher for a given test score 
   compared to the current qualifier standard (e.g., SAT of 1000 would 
   require 2.5 high school core GPA for competition vs. 2.0 currently).
 o Obtain a minimum core GPA of 2.3 in the 16 core courses currently 
   required.
 o Meet core-course requirements described later.

                                                                         ‹#›
