This is not an all-inclusive list, but it does list the basics of NJCAA student-athlete eligibility.
If these criteria are met, then you will be initially qualified to participate in the intercollegiate Basketball Team activities.
Each student’s academic and athletic situation is unique, and the NJCAA eligibility rules are complex. We recommended that you discuss your eligibility with our team coaches. They can contact the NJCAA National Office for assistance.
Eligibility is determined prior to the last day to register for classes. All dates are published in the College Catalog.
Make satisfactory progress towards graduation. Before participation in a second season in any sport, you must have:
A: We abide by the Rules Of Eligibility of the NJCAA, the rules and regulations of the CUNY Athletic Conference, and the rules of the College
A: You are allowed two seasons of competition in any sport, if you have not participated at any intercollegiate level during the two previous seasons. Playing in one or more regularly scheduled contests prior to post-season competition equals one season of participation in that sport.Falsifying academic records and/or information about previous athletic participation will disqualify you from competition in any NJCAA member college at any time.
