The NCAA says you have 5 years (or 10 semesters) to remain eligible for competition (NCAA Bylaw 14.2). See www.ncaa.org
The NCAA also says that you must remain in good academic standing and be enrolled in at least full-time course hours (NCAA Bylaw 14.01.2). See www.ncaa.org
Here at Florida State University, we require you to keep in continuous contact with your academic advisor who will keep you current in your academic standing. In addition, you must be enrolled in 12 credit hours! As always, we know that situations arise from time to time. Please feel free to contact the Compliance office if you have any questions!!
