NIRSA Eligibility Guidelines

Updated: October 11, 2010

Please note, the 2013-2014 NIRSA Eligibility Guidelines have NOT CHANGED since last season. Review carefully and contact Valerie McCutchan or (541) 766-8211 if you have any questions or need clarification on any of the guidelines.

 

Player Eligibility:

  • Players must be enrolled for the minimum number of hours  (listed below) for at least 45 days prior to the beginning of the championship event.
    • Undergraduates - minimum of ½ full-time enrollment status
    • Graduate - minimum of six credit hours
    • If a player is a graduating senior, and taking less than the required hours to fulfill their graduation requirements, submit a letter from the registrar along with the registration materials stating that the player will be graduating the same term of the event.
    • For NIRSA events that occur during an academic break, the preceding term will be used to determine eligibility.
    • Participants from schools on the quarter system must meet the eligibility requirements of the half time enrollment for both the current and the preceding quarter.
  • Players are limited to six appearances in NIRSA National events or appearing on a varsity roster per sport. These appearances can be nonconsecutive, but after any six appearances on a roster in the same sport eligibility is exhausted.
    • Beginning in the fall of 2010, anyone participating as a first-time participant has six years of eligibility per sport at NIRSA events. Players that have appeared on a NIRSA roster in the same sport between the fall of 2005 and spring 2010 also have six appearances that can also be nonconsecutive. Any players that appeared on a NIRSA event roster or varsity squad list prior to the fall of 2005 are no longer eligible to participate in NIRSA events. If a player has appeared on a "varsity squad list" at any two-year or four-year college varsity team in the same sport, this also constitutes a year(s) of used eligibility. If a student played on varsity sport for two years, they still have four appearances left at NIRSA events (so long as their team doesn't exceed the maximum number of varsity players).
  • Players must not be listed on the varsity roster (or "Squad List") in the same or related sport for the current academic year. 
    • Exceptions may be granted to any player that was listed on the roster for less than three weeks
    • If a former varsity player has been listed on a varsity roster or "squad list" for four or five academic years, that player is not eligible for NIRSA competition until after one full academic year has lapsed from the final academic year they were listed on a school's varsity squad list.
  • The following matrix can be used to clarify eligibility and classification:

  • Players have never been declared a professional athlete in the same or related sport.
    • A professional athlete is one who receives any kind of payment, directly or indirectly, for athletic participation, or who has participated in competition with a professional team.
    • A professional athletics team is any organized team that provides any of its players more than actual and necessary expenses for participation on the team and/or declares itself to be professional.

Team Eligibility

  • All team players must attend the same institution from any two or four year degree-granting college or university.
  • Teams representing military installations are eligible to compete, so long as all members of those teams are assigned to the same military installation.
  • No women are allowed to compete on a men's team, and no men are allowed to compete on a women's team.
  • Teams are limited to number of former varsity player(s) (listed below) they can register.  A former varsity player is defined as a student who has been listed on a "school's varsity squad list" for any 2-year or 4-year college/university team for more than one academic year:
    • Basketball - 1 athlete
    • Flag Football - 2 athletes
    • Volleyball - 2 athletes
    • Tennis - 1 athlete
    • Soccer - 3 athletes

Regional/National NIRSA events Student Officials Eligibility

  • Officials must meet the same enrollment eligibility criteria as players throughout the NIRSA event: half-time for undergraduates and at least six hours for graduates at their representing institution.
