Question of the Week:
Question: Cent R. Circle is a soccer student-athlete at Ocean State College. Cent graduated in the spring of 2009 but has returned this fall to play her final season. Cent is enrolled in a full-time course load this semester and all the hours can be applied toward the sport management degree program. Cent, however, is categorized as an undecided student in the institution's computer system.
Does Cent have to actually declare a major?
NCAA Official Interpretation- 9/26/06- Postbaccalaureate Student-Athlete Taking Coursework toward Second Major or Degree (I/II/III)- states that a student-athlete who has graduated and is continuing as a full-time student at the same institution while taking course work that would lead to the equivalent of another major or degree as defined and documented by the institution is not required to officially declare or designate another major or degree. The student-athlete must be enrolled in course work that is acceptable toward any of the institution's other majors or degrees. [Reference: NCAA Divisions I, II, and III Bylaw 14.1.9 (graduate student/postbaccalaureate participation).]
