Eligibility for Participation in Co-Curricular Activities
Student participation in co-curricular activities at NDSU is encouraged as an important aspect of college life and is viewed as helping fulfill social and general education needs as well as developing leadership ability. Students who are on academic or conduct probation may participate as members in campus co-curricular activities unless higher standards are set by the specific campus organization. However, such students should consult with their academic adviser to establish a reasonable balance between successful academic performance and co-curricular involvement.
Students in leadership positions
Students holding elected or appointed leadership positions must meet the following academic and good conduct eligibility standards:
- Must have attained and must maintain during the term of participation a minimal cumulative grade average of 2.0.
- Must be enrolled for and maintain a minimum of nine (9) semester credits during the term of participation and have successfully completed nine (9) credits from the most recent semester of enrollment for undergraduate students. Graduate students must be enrolled for and maintain a minimum of five (5) semester credits during the term of participation and have successfully completed five (5) credits from the most recent semester of enrollment.
- Must be in good conduct standing with the Office of the Assistant Vice Provost for Student Affairs.
- First semester new freshman, transfer students and graduate students will be treated comparably according to available information.
- Faculty, staff or university representatives serving as organizations/activities advisers shall be responsible for and have the right to verify eligibility of students who hold leadership positions.
This policy will be administered by a staff member appointed by the Assistant Vice Provost for Student Affairs. Appeals may be made to the Assistant Vice Provost for Student Affairs.
