NCAA RAISES ACADEMIC STANDARDS FOR STUDENT-ATHLETES
Published January 10, 1995
The NCAA yesterday agreed to raise academic standards for incoming student-athletes, and refused to grant a fourth year of eligibility to those sidelined by the tougher rules. However, the delegates did vote to lower the minimum standardized test score for incoming freshmen to no lower than 600 in order to qualify for an athletic scholarship. The new standards will also require incoming freshmen to have at least a 2.0 GPA in 13 core courses instead of 11, and, by '96, freshman eligiblity will be decided by an "indexed scale that was approved three years ago." Judith Albino, Chair of the NCAA Presidents Commission: "What we have done is reaffirm the new higher standards" (J.A. Adande, WASHINGTON POST, 1/10).
