Who is a "Prospective Student-Athlete"?

A prospective student-athlete ("prospect") is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospective student-athlete, if the institution provides such an individual (or the individual's relatives or friends) any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students generally. An individual remains a prospective student-athlete until one of the following occurs (whichever occurs earlier):

(a) The individual officially registers and enrolls in a minimum full-time program of studies and attends classes in any term of a four-year collegiate institution's regular academic year (excluding summer); or

(b) The individual participates in a regular-squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution.

Prospective student-athletes who wish to play at a NCAA Division I or II institution (SNHU is a Division II institution) must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center.  SNHU is a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Northeast-10 Conference.
