POLICY STATEMENT

Presidents of the institutions having intercollegiate athletics programs are instructed to establish policies and procedures that commit student-athletes, counselors, coaches, and athletic program administrators to pursuing the dual student-athlete goals of maintaining normal progress toward completion of the baccalaureate degree and a attainment thereof, usually in not more than five years after the date of initial registration.  Such policies shall require:

(2) Development and use of continuing academic progress monitoring systems which, when necessary, activate appropriate corrective measures by the student-athlete, counselor, coaches, and athletic program administrator.

(3) Each institution president to submit annually to the Board a report on the success of student-athletes in pursuing the goals of academic progress and degree attainment.
