To be eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletics, a student shall meet the minimum requirements of the National Junior College Athletic Association and Anne Arundel Community College.
In addition to the National Junior College Athletic Association requirements, a first-year participant shall receive a minimum 1.75 adjusted grade point average, which omits repeated, forgiven and developmental courses. A second-year participant shall achieve a minimum 2.00 adjusted grade point average, which omits repeated, forgiven and developmental courses. Participants must comply with all college policies, particularly regarding demonstration of residency for tuition purposes. To establish and maintain eligibility, participants must pay all tuition and fees by the scheduled due date.
Eligibility for all transfer students who wish to participate in intercollegiate athletics will be assessed based upon the transcripts from their most recently attended postsecondary institution where they attained full-time status (attempting 12 credits or more). They shall comply with the standards enumerated previously, according to their years of participation at the collegiate level with regards to the specific sport. At the point a student-athlete has established a grade point average at Anne Arundel Community College, then eligibility will be assessed based upon his/her achievement at Anne Arundel Community College.
