NCAA Rules Regarding Class Absences

  • NCAA (bylaw states that no class time shall be missed for practice activities except when a team is traveling to an away from home contest and the practice is in conjunction with the contest. The exception to this rule is at a home conference or NCAA Championship: student-athletes from the team representing the host institution shall be permitted to miss class time to attend practice activities conducted the day before the competition.
  • The Athletic Department makes every effort to schedule a minimal amount of travel for competitions that affect student-athletes' class time. Student-athletes are given official travel letters from the Athletic Department to notify their professors of their travel schedules. The Athletic Department encourages faculty to work with student-athletes in making up an assignment or exam missed while they are representing the University. Please feel free to contact the Athletic Academic Affairs Office with any questions.
