Earlier today, Council of Presidents Chair Arvid Johnson announced the COVID-19 exception to freshman eligibility standards that was approved by the COP Executive Committee earlier this week.
We appreciate your patience as we have worked over the last several weeks towards this outcome. The goal has always been to ensure a path forward for those prospective student-athletes who would generally be eligible, but have been unable to take or retake the ACT or SAT due to cancellations.
With input from the National Eligibility Committee and the Council of Faculty Athletics Representatives, we have
added more information to the FAQs
regarding the COVID-19 freshman eligibility exception, general eligibility, and financial aid. (The FAQs contain a lot of information, so be sure to scroll down for all the updates.)
Please let us know if you have any questions.
