NCCS Eligibility Guidelines
Player Eligibility

        Players must be enrolled for the minimum number of hours (listed below) for at least 45 days prior to the beginning of
         the championship event.
             o Undergraduates - minimum of ½ full-time enrollment status
             o Graduate - minimum of six credit hours
             o If a player is a graduating senior, and taking less than the required hours to fulfill their graduation
                  requirements, submit a letter from the registrar along with the registration materials stating that the player will
                  be graduating the same term of the event.
             o For NCCS events that occur during an academic break, the preceding term will be used to determine eligibility.
             o Participants from schools on the quarter system must meet the eligibility requirements of the half time
                  enrollment for both the current and the preceding quarter.
        Players are limited to six appearances in NCCS/NIRSA National events or appearing on a varsity roster per sport. These
         appearances can be nonconsecutive, but after any six appearances on a roster in the same sport eligibility is
         exhausted.
             o Beginning in the fall of 2010, anyone participating as a first-time participant has six years of eligibility per sport
                  at NCCS/NIRSA events. Players that have appeared on a NCCS/NIRSA roster between the fall of 2005 and
                  spring 2010 also have six appearances that can also be nonconsecutive. Any players that appeared on a
                  NCCS/NIRSA event roster prior to the fall of 2005 are no longer eligible to participate in NCCS/NIRSA events.
                  If a player has appeared on a “varsity squad list” at any two-year or four-year college varsity team in the same
                  sport, this also constitutes a year(s) of used eligibility. If a student played on varsity sport for two years, they
                  still have four appearances left at NCCS/NIRSA events (so long as their team doesn’t exceed the maximum
                  number of varsity players).
        Players must not be listed on the varsity roster (or “Squad List”) in the same or related sport for the current academic
         year.
             o Exceptions may be granted to any player that was listed on the roster for less than three weeks
             o If a former varsity player has been listed on a varsity roster or “squad list” for four or five academic years, that
                  player is not eligible for NCCS competition until after one full academic year has lapsed from the final
                  academic year they were listed on a school’s varsity squad list.
        The following matrix can be used to clarify eligibility and classification:
