Eligibility Requirements For Athletics and Activities


The Athletics and Activities programs at Cairo American College play an important role in the lives of CAC students. The programs are designed to aid in the total educational development of all students involved.

Academic Standing
To stay in Good Academic Standing, all students must maintain a grade point average of 2.0 or higher and have no failing grades.  Good academic standing is required for students who wish to participate in athletic, performing arts and activity co-curricular programs.

Eligibility to travel and participate are based on the quarter's report grades. In order to participate in athletic, performing arts and activity co-curricular programs, students:

  • Must have a minimum of a 2.0 grade point average and have no failing grades on the last quarter report. First quarter eligibility is based on the fourth quarter grades of the previous year.
  • May not exceed the minimum attendance requirement due to travel. It is the student's responsibility to monitor whether travelling will jeopardize his/her ability to meet the 85 percent minimum attendance requirement, calculated per semester.
  • A student may not withdraw from a course in order to travel.
  • A student with unexcused absence in any class will not be considered for a waiver from the minimum attendance policy.
  • Students participating in athletic, activity or performing arts events hosted by CAC must meet the Travel Eligibility requirements outlined above.
  • Becuase of travel arrangements, visas, housing and commitments to affiliated organizations (ISTA, ISST, EMAC etc.) if quarter grades are published within 15 calendar days of a tournament, festival or conference, students will be able to participate regardless of their academic standing.
