ACADEMIC SUPPORT FOR STUDENT ATHLETES

Student-athletes are part of the LETU campus community and are treated like all other members of the general student body, which means we help them stay focused on being a student first. Athletics provide valuable "life lessons," which often translates into becoming a better student and a responsible citizen. Student-athletes:

  • Are subject to admission and academic performance standards consistent with the general student body.
  • Are not provided any special services or support from the institution than what is offered to other students or student groups.

STUDY HALL FOR ATHLETES

The Achievement Center provides an environment conducive to studying for all students. The center includes a computer lab, printer, wireless access and a study area.

Student-athletes may be required to complete 4 hours of study hall each week at the Achievement Center or designated team study hall. Study hours are required for all incoming freshmen, transfer students, and returning student-athletes with the minimum GPA determined by the head coach.

Student-athletes will be notified by their coach if they are required to complete study hours, and they will be expected to do so until their academic status changes. All coaches have access to weekly study hall attendance data.
