Athletic Eligibility

Grace Christian University offers intercollegiate athletic teams in men’s soccer and basketball, and women’s volleyball, soccer, and basketball. Grace also offers co-ed cross country, bowling, tennis, and track and field. Grace Christian University, although not presently a member of an athletic conference, is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), a 110-plus member organization which sponsors national tournaments in soccer, basketball, and volleyball.

To be eligible for competition in intercollegiate athletics, a player must be regularly enrolled for 12 hours of credit and have achieved a total of 24 hours of credit for the previous two semesters. Athletes who have achieved Junior standing must maintain a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Other NCCAA eligibility requirements affect how the GPA is calculated and which courses count toward credit hours needed. The Athletic Director and the University Registrar determine eligibility according to both the NCCAA and Grace Christian University rules. Grace Christian University may also restrict participation in intercollegiate athletics for students on academic or social probation
