Current Student Athletes

What do I have to do to be eligible at Keene State College?

1.) Be enrolled as a full-time, matriculated, student.   What does this mean?

  • You must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits.  
    • Exception: A senior in their final semester may take less than 12 credits if those courses are the only ones remaining they need to complete their graduation requirements.
  • Do not drop a class without adding another one!  Dropping a class can have major ramifications on your teams' success as well as your academic eligibility.

2.) Keep a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better.

  • If your GPA is between a 1.0 and a 2.0, you may practice, but cannot compete in games.  Please understand that practicing after the first game in the traditional season (the one that ends in a championship) will use a season of participation, regardless of whether you took part in that game or not.

3.) Continually making progress towards your degree.  There are two ways to do this.

  • Pass 24 credits over the previous two semesters at Keene State.
    OR
  • Have an average of 12 credits passed per full time term while enrolled at Keene State

4.) Complete all required medical paperwork

  • Have proof of medical insurance on file with the Athletic Training office
  • Have an updated medical history on file with the Athletic Training office.
  • Provide confirmation of your sickle cell status or sign the waiver and complete the required education.
  • New student-athletes must have had a physical within six months of their first practice.

5.) Attend your teams' NCAA rules meeting each fall.   Contact your head coach  for the specific date.
