Intercollegiate athletic competition is governed by the Coast Conference and the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA). Obtaining clearance for athletic eligibility often requires considerable checking of records. These procedures should be started well in advance of the opening of each athletic season. The Athletic Director will interpret the State Athletic Constitution and Bylaws along with Conference regulations for all persons concerned. In general, the following principles pertain to matters of eligibility:
- In order to be eligible, a student-athlete must be actively enrolled in a minimum of 12 units during the season of sport. Such eligibility is required for non-conference, conference, and post-conference participation.
- To be eligible for the second season of competition, the student-athlete must complete and pass 24 semester units with a cumulative 2.0 (C) grade point average. These units must be completed prior to the beginning of the semester of the second season of competition. All units must be completed and passed at a regionally accredited post- secondary institution with at least six of the units earned in their previous semester as a full-time student.
- A student transferring for academic or athletic participation, who has previously participated in intercollegiate athletics at another California Community College, must complete 12 units in residence prior to the beginning of the semester of competition.
- In order to continue athletic participation in any sport, the student-athlete must maintain a cumulative 2.0 (C) grade point average in accredited post-secondary coursework computed since the start of the semester of first participation and pass at least six units in their previous semester as a full-time student.
- The 12 unit residency rule for previous participants will be waived for a student-athlete who has not competed at a post-secondary institution in the past two years.
- In meeting the unit requirements, courses in which grades of D, F, or NC were received may be repeated. Under special circumstances, courses that have been completed with a grade of C or better may be repeated; however, the units will not be counted toward the minimum unit requirement in the semester of competition.
Student-athletes who plan to transfer prior to receiving an Associate degree should meet with their counselor/coach and verify eligibility status for transfer based on past work and test scores from high school.
Those students who transfer to a four-year school for athletic competition and wish to seek financial assistance must meet minimum requirements in accordance with the Bylaws of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) or the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
