As educators, one important goal of the Earlham Department of Athletics is to fully live the College’s Athletics and Wellness Mission Statement through our commitment to the academic success of our student-athletes.
An Earlham student-athlete is expected to be making satisfactory progress toward his/her degree and must be registered for a minimum of 12 semester credit hours to be eligible to participate. A student who is not meeting the progress toward her/his degree requirement may be placed in one of four categories: academic caution, probation, final probation or suspension from the College.
A student who is placed on final probation at the end of a given semester will not be eligible to participate in traditional regular season contests during the ensuing semester. However, a student-athlete may remain on their athletics team, participate in practices and in non-traditional season practices and contest(s) with their respective program at both the Director of Athletics’ and the head coach’s discretion. A student-athlete may return to traditional regular season competition only after being removed from final probation at the end of a semester.
