Academic Eligibility

Rule 18 - Scholarship (IHSAA by-laws: http://www.ihsaa.org/Portals/0/ihsaa/documents/about%20ihsaa/2017-18%20By-Laws.pdf)

18-1 Minimum Course Enrollment and Grades for Participation

To be eligible scholastically, students must have received passing grades and earned credit at the end of their last Grading Period in School in at least Seventy percent (70%) of the maximum number of full credit subjects (or the equivalent) that a student can take and must be currently Enrolled in at least Seventy percent (70%) of the maximum number of full credit subjects (or the equivalent) that a student can take.

a. For purposes of this rule, a student must have been Enrolled in a minimum of Four (4) full credit courses (or the equivalent) during the last Grading Period, and must be Enrolled in a minimum of Four (4) full credit subjects (or the equivalent) during the current Grading Period.

b. If grades reported at an Eligibility Certification Date include both Grading Period grades and semester grades, then semester grades take precedence for eligibility purposes.

c. A student may use up to Two (2) semesters of the state-required physical education course for eligibility purposes, with each semester’s course counting as One (1) full credit.

d. Physical education credit earned by participation on an athletic team, may not count toward academic eligibility.

e. When the block Four scheduling program is used, students must be currently Enrolled in and passing Three (3) courses.

f. Class periods must meet Indiana Department of Education standards for awarding credit and minutes in class. For purposes of this rule, One (1) full credit subject requires a minimum total of Two Hundred Fifty (250) minutes of instruction per week for One (1) semester.

g. In the event a School establishes minimum academic requirements which are greater than the IHSAA academic requirements, the IHSAA will consider those higher academic requirements to constitute the IHSAA academic requirements at such School, and will require that a student at that School meet those greater academic requirements before that student is eligible scholastically under this rule.
