The athletic department considers academics the essential part of a student's college career. Our department has established academic guidelines to assist the student-athlete in successfully completing academic objectives while also balancing an athletic career.
As an athletic department within an academic institution, our mission is two-fold. Our first task is to maintain a high level of academic excellence which generates an even higher rate of graduation than the total student population. Secondly, our mission is to provide an atmosphere within which each student-athlete can be successful academically while also enjoying a positive athletic experience at the University. Our hope is to combine their goals in a positive environment in support of the University's mission.
Our responsibilities include monitoring the satisfactory academic progress of each athlete from enrollment through graduation. Providing and monitoring study halls, securing tutors, utilizing the various programs on campus, and establishing realistic graduation tracks are all ways in which we offer support to our athletes. Parameters of remaining academic requirements within each college of the University, as well as those requirements established by the NCAA, are followed.
