Enhanced Academic Support
Study time is provided for all Student-Athletes. The Associate Athletics Director for Student Services and the Academic Coordinator determines the number of hours Student-Athletes spend in Enhanced Academic Support (EAS) based on Cumulative Grade Point Averages.

Enhanced Academic Support (EAS) Expectations
Each semester, the GHSS staff identifies student-athletes who require academic assistance. Student-Athletes are given a "plan" for academic success. This may include several academic support services that the GHSS staff believes that an individual Student-Athlete will need to achieve his/her full academic potential.

Class Attendance Policy
Every Student-Athlete is expected to attend all class sessions. Failure to attend class may result in suspension from the team or loss/reduction of an athletic grant-in-aid scholarship. All student-athletes will be subject to the attendance policy regardless of grade point average. This policy will be enforced in the Fall, Spring, and Summer sessions. The following methods will be used to monitor class attendance:

  • Class Checks
  • Direct mail requests
  • Electronic correspondence with professors
  • Telephone calls to professors
  • Personal visits with professors
