QOTW - Week of June 25, 2012

Clear for Practice and Competition

Q: Once an incoming student-athlete is certified as academic final qualifier, are they finished with the Eligibility Center and are cleared for practice and competition?

A:No. Once an incoming student-athlete is certified as an academic qualifier, he or she may practice (after pre-season or fall school begins) temporarily while waiting for amateurism certification (recruited SAs get a 14-day grace period while non-recruited SAs get 45 days). To continue practicing beyond that time, and to be cleared for competition a SA must be a qualifier AND a certified amateur. These are two distinct processes at the Eligibility Center. In order for a PSA to be certified as an amateur he or she must:

  • Register with the Eligibility Center (www.eligibilitycenter.org)
  • Truthfully answer the amateurism questions during the registration process.
  • Request final amateurism certification (after Nov. 1st for Spring enrollees and after April 1st for Fall enrollees)
  • Monitor the email address used to register for possible correspondence from the amateurism processing staff.
  • As always, be sure to get in touch with the Compliance Office and ask before you act!
