Recruiting
Matt H. participated in men’s swimming at the University of Kansas for
two years. Matt calls ANU’s head swimming coach and tells the coach he
is thinking about transferring to ANU. You, as FAR, recently read a press
release issued by the University of Kansas that it will no longer sponsor
varsity men’s swimming. Does ANU need to notify the University of
Kansas in writing within 10 days of Matt’s contact with the coach?
1.
Yes
2.
No

Answer: Yes
Rationale: Article II, Section D, Item 1
The announcement of a program’s discontinuance does not create an
exception to NAIA recruiting rules. The recruiting bylaw applies to any
“enrolled” student. Your institution is required to give notice to the
University of Kansas Athletic Department within 10 days of contact even if
there is no longer a men’s swim team.

Mid-year Eligibility
Jimmy Chitwood is a first-term freshman basketball player identified at
ANU. Jimmy initially received an “Ineligible” determination from the EC
(no class rank and 16 on the ACT). Jimmy takes the ACT again in
October and scores a 24. (His dog was sick on the first attempt). On
Nov. 12th ACT sends the scores to the EC and he receives an “Eligible”
determination for the fall term. Provided he is otherwise eligible, when
may Jimmy begin participating? (ANU does not offer an inter-term.)
1.
Upon EC determination and placement on the eligibility certificate.
2.
The first day of classes of the winter/spring term.
3.
The day after the last day of the fall term.
4.
Jimmy did not meet V.C.2 and must sit the entire year.

Answer: #3 – Day after last day of fall term
Rationale: NEC Interpretation of Article V, Section D, Item 2
A student is eligible for athletics participation on the day following the close
of a term, provided the student meets all eligibility requirements for the
upcoming term and is properly certified as eligible. The close of the term is
the date on the institution’s calendar marking the official end of the term.

Mid-year Eligibility
Jimmy Chitwood is properly placed on the eligibility certificate and
begins participating with your men’s basketball team the day following
the close of the fall term. In February, ACT sends notice to ANU and the
NAIA EC that Jimmy’s test score is no longer valid. ANU immediately
withholds Jimmy from further participation.
Which statement is most accurate based on known facts?
1.
Jimmy is immediately ineligible for failing to meet V.C.2.
2.
ANU must forfeit any games in which Jimmy participated.
3.
ANU must submit a self-report violation.
4.
None of the above.

N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #1 – Immediately Ineligible
Rationale: Article V, Section C, Item 2
An invalidated test score immediately nullifies information submitted to the
NAIA Eligibility Center. As such, Jimmy no longer meets the freshman 2 of
3 requirement and is ineligible for further participation. The case could go
before NEC or CEC for forfeits and/or penalties if SAT or ACT provides
additional information pertaining to student-athlete misconduct.

Amateurism
Willie Mays Hayes competes in baseball and track at ANU. Willie
attends a greyhound race with friends during the summer. The race
track offers $500 to anyone who can beat a greyhound in a race (with a
head start). Willie’s friends convince him to accept the challenge and
he eventually beats the dog. Willie claims his $500. Which statement
about Willie’s amateur status is correct?
1.
Willie will lose his amateur status in baseball.
2.
Willie will lose his amateur status in track and field.
3.
Willie will lose his amateur status in all NAIA-sponsored sports.
4.
Willie will not lose his amateur status in any sport.
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #2 – Loss of Amateur Status in T&F
Rationale: Article VII, Section D, Item 4
In general, NAIA amateurism rules are sport specific. VII.D.4 is a bit of an
adaptation in that it addresses receiving remuneration from athletic ability
related to an exhibition involving the primary focus of a particular sport. In
this case, Willie exploited his running ability for $500 at the exhibition.

Graduation
Ester W. completes all requirements for her baccalaureate degree at
the end of her 8th TOA at ANU. She has 1 season of competition
remaining in swimming. Provided she is otherwise eligible, what is the
correct academic path that allows Ester to participate in her last SOC in
swimming?
1.
Withhold filing for graduation to prevent meeting “requirements
for graduation.”
2.
Enroll in 12 credits toward an additional minor program at ANU.
3.
Enroll in a post-baccalaureate teacher program at another school.
4.
Enroll in 12 credits toward a second major at ANU.

N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #4 – Enroll in 12 hrs toward a 2nd major
Rationale: Exception to Article V, Section D, Item 5
A student completing all academic requirements for graduation retains
eligibility only if the student is enrolled in any of the following at the
institution where the student earned his or her baccalaureate degree:
 Graduate or professional school,
 5th year teacher education program, or
 A second major area of study

Repeat Courses
Tom C. achieves a “D” in ECO 101 (Principles of Economics) at ONC.
He transfers to ANU where the school does not transfer credits earned
with a “D”. Tom enrolls in BUS 105 (Fundamentals of Economics) and
earns a grade of B+. The course is placed on the transcript in the
normal course without recognition as a repeat class. The registrar at
ANU confirms BUS 105 & ECO 101 are the same class. Can ANU
apply Mike’s BUS 105 credits toward the 24/36 hour rule for
certification in the next 2 semesters?
1.
Yes
2.
No
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: No

Repeat courses passed with a grade of “D” or better cannot count
toward satisfying the 24/36 hour rule.

Answer: #3 – Not enough information
Rationale: NAIA International Academic Standards Directory
The directory lists the standards used by the Eligibility Center in making
determinations for international students, based on each country’s
educational system. In England, a student’s GPA is calculated based not
on a transcript GPA but on results from any of the following exams: GCSE,
VCE O-level, VCSE and Intermediate GNVQ.

Unattached Student-Athlete
Andre T. Giant is a first-term freshman who wants to wrestle for ANU,
but he only meets one of the three freshman requirements (GPA).
Andre’s coach tells him he can wrestle as an unattached studentathlete in an upcoming meet. Which of the following is true?
1.
Andre cannot wear an ANU uniform but he can sit with the ANU
team in the stands and participate in pre-meet practice.
2.
Andre does not meet eligibility requirements, so any
participation is a violation.
3.
Andre cannot ride with the team, but can eat a meal provided
by ANU.
4.
Because he is competing unattached from ANU, Andre can
accept the cash prize offered for 1st place.
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #1 – No uniform, can practice with team
Rationale: Exception #2 to Article V, Section B, Item 18
To compete as an unattached student-athlete and not be charged an SOC,
ANU cannot enter Andre in the meet or provide meals/housing/
transportation related to the event. Andre cannot wear an ANU uniform, is
not covered by ANU insurance (and must be informed of such), and must
abide by all amateur status regulations.

Junior College Transfer
Sting identifies at ONC in the fall of his freshman year. He participates
in soccer and is charged an SOC and two TOAs. Sting transfers to a
JuCo and identifies in the fall and spring semesters. He is charged two
TOAs, but never participates. Sting now wants to transfer to ANU.
Which statement is most accurate?
1.
Sting needs a new determination from the NAIA Eligibility Center.
2.
Sting is eligible for immediate participation.
3.
Sting is subject to the residency requirement.
4.
None of the above.
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #3 – Residency requirement applies
Rationale: Article V, Section G, Item 1
Sting is a transfer that participated at his immediately previous four-year
institution (ONC). Simply attending a two-year institution, even with
participation, is not enough to negate the residency requirement. Article V,
Section H applies only when the student-athlete attends a two-year
institution without previous identification at a four-year institution.

She-ra is in her 3rd SOC in basketball. She just completed her 5th TOA
in the fall when she enrolled/attended 9 semester credits at ANU and 3
semester credits (approved by ANU) at a nearby school. ANU’s fall
term ends on Dec. 15th. The term closes at the nearby school on Dec.
21st. Assuming she needs to earn all 12 credits to be eligible, what is
the last date in which She-ra can participate without being recertified?
1.
January 1
2.
January 5
3.
January 12
4.
February 1
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answers: #2 – January 5th
Rationale: Article V, Section C, Item 14
ANU must recertify She-ra prior to her first participation, or 21 days from
the date which ANU cites as the official close of its fall term, whichever is
later. If She-ra’s official grades from the other institution are not properly
submitted and recorded by the registrar in the normal manner by January
5th, ANU cannot recertify She-ra and she cannot participate.

Transfer Students (SOC)
Paul “Wrecking” Crewe was charged two SOCs for outside competition
by the NAIA Eligibility Center. He attended a four-year institution, but
never competed in intercollegiate athletics. He transferred to ANU for
the Spring 2012 semester and wants to play in ANU’s spring
scrimmage against ONC. He accumulated 12 credits Fall 2010, 12
credits Spring 2011 and 12 credits Fall 2011. If all credits are based on
semester systems, does Paul satisfy the Progress Rule for Spring
2012?
1.
Yes
2.
No
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #2 – No
Rationale: Article V, Section C, Item 9
Paul must be properly certified as a student-athlete going into his 3rd SOC
to participate in any competition during the spring semester. Although he
won’t be charged his 3rd SOC if he only competes in a scrimmage, he
must have the 48 semester credits required by the Progress Rule if he
wants to participate in the scrimmage.

Transfer Students
Rudy R. goes through the EC and gets a determination of “Eligible – 4
seasons available.” He attends ONC for 2 semesters and participates
in football. He transfers to Notre Dame, enrolls full-time for one year,
but does not play. Rudy then transfers to a JuCo, enrolls part-time for
one year, and does not play. Rudy finally transfers to ANU. How do you
determine Rudy’s SOCs?
1.
Only played one year, charge 1 SOC
2.
Call Notre Dame, honor number of SOCs charged
3.
Call the JuCo, honor number of SOCs charged
4.
Do a competitive experience review of Rudy’s last year,
using the Evaluative Criteria
5.
#2 and #4
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: #5– Accept ND’s SOCs and do CE review
Rationale: Article V, Section B, Item 18
The SOCs charged by Notre Dame will be honored because Rudy was an
identified student at that institution. Because Rudy did not identify at the
junior college, it is seen as a break in enrollment and that entire year is
subject to a competitive experience review. The review should be done by
ANU’s FAR using the Evaluative Criteria.

Eligibility Center
Daniel Larusso registers with the EC with no break out of high school.
He lists soccer as the only sport he will play in college. He receives a
EC determination of “Eligible - 4 Seasons Available” in soccer. Daniel
competes in soccer for ANU in Fall 2012. During the fall semester
Daniel runs unattached in three marathon races. He decides in January
he wants to run outdoor track for ANU in the spring. Does Daniel need
an EC determination in track prior to participation?
1.
Yes
2.
No
‹#›
N A T I O N A L A S S O C I A T I O N O F I N T E R CO L L E G I A T E A T H L E T I C S
Answer: No
Rationale: EC Situation Analysis
A student competing for an NAIA school in the original sport before adding
a new sport does not need a new determination. If Daniel had a break
between high school and enrollment at ANU the FAR would complete a
competitive experience review for track.
Note: If Daniel had not competed in soccer (i.e. “redshirt”), he would have
to reactivate with the EC and receive an updated determination prior to
competing in track.
