After a prospective student-athlete’s expected date of high school graduation, they have a certain amount of time (grace period) to continue sports participation before initially enrolling full time at any two- or four-year college or university. Generally, if the prospective student-athletes does not enroll at the first opportunity after the grace period and continues to participate in organized competition, they will use a season of NCAA eligibility for each 12-month period during which the PSA continues to compete.  The PSA may also be required to serve an academic year in residence (two full-time semesters or three quarters) at the NCAA school before becoming eligible to compete.
