Eligibility for intercollegiate squash competition shall be determined by each College Squash Association member institution in accordance with NCAA rules.
These rules are complex, and they are different for each NCAA Division.
Any questions about eligibility should be referred to an institution’s NCAA compliance staff member for a ruling.
What follows is a brief overview of NCAA eligibility rules:
- NCAA Division I: First year graduate students may be eligible if they have one of their 4 years of eligibility remaining and if they are within the 5-year window beginning the day they enrolled in college. Ivy League rules are more restrictive and are similar to NCAA Division III rules.
- NCAA Division III: First year graduate students are only eligible if they are enrolled for a graduate degree at the same institution they attended as an undergraduate, have a year of eligibility remaining, and fall within the 5-year window.
Individuals should check their NCAA Division Manuals and speak to their NCAA compliance staff members to clarify any eligibility questions they may have about their teams.
Club and Emerging programs may not have graduate students participate in college squash competition.
