    NIRSA Eligibility Guidelines

    Player Eligibility

    Players must be enrolled for the minimum number of hours (listed below) for at least 45 days prior to the beginning of the championship event.

    Players are limited to six appearances in NIRSA Championship Series national events or appearing on a varsity roster per sport. These appearances can be nonconsecutive, but after any six appearances on a roster in the same sport eligibility is exhausted.

    Players must not be listed on the varsity roster (or "Squad List") in the same or related sport for the current academic year.

    If a former varsity player has been listed on a varsity roster or "squad list" for four or five academic years, that player is not eligible for NIRSA Championship Series competition until after one full academic year has lapsed from the final academic year they were listed on a school's varsity squad list.

    The following matrix can be used to clarify eligibility and classification:
