One area of academic programming that seems to be of particular interest to student athletes is the pursuit of a four-year degree. At Lethbridge College we can get you off to a great start with the first two years of most degree programs. The transition from high school to post-secondary education is a challenge for many; taking the first two years at a college, with smaller classes, often leads to greater success.
The rules of eligibility in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association are quite detailed. The basics you need to know now are:
- you have five years of eligibility
- you must carry at least 9 credit hours per term
- you must pass 18 credit hours in an academic year
- you are required to maintain a GPA of 2.0 or better.
