NCAA Division III COVID-19 Q&A

NCAA Division III COVID-19 Q&A

Updated April 27, 2020

The NCAA Division III measures approved on Friday, March 13, include an additional semester and season of eligibility for all student-athletes participating in spring sports, the removal of a minimum threshold of sponsored spring sports, and the flexibility for schools to assist students with travel, lodging and meals as a result of campus displacement. 

On eligibility, the committee approved a blanket waiver for all student-athletes participating in spring sports. The waiver will be in effect even if a school continues or restarts its spring season. In Division III, student-athletes have 10 semesters or 15 quarters to get in four seasons of participation. With this move by the committee, the 2020 spring semester will not count toward their 10 semesters or four seasons.

Any student-athletes that have chosen the pass/fail option this trimester and have questions about this policy in regards to your NCAA eligibility please email Associate AD John LaRose.
