- An athletes entire first year on campus, they are required to clock in 8 hours per week in the athletic study building.
- That first year, they are also required to meet with an academic advisor once a week.
- If after the first year the student-athlete has above a 3.0 gpa, they are no longer required to get hours.
- If a student-athlete is caught cheating, their scholarship is revoked.
It is a stereotype that Division I athletes get into their institutions and get a free ride to a diploma. I know most universities are similar to mine, where academics is actually a priority and the student-athletes have to work just as hard, if not harder, to earn their respected degrees.
