Eligibility & Ineligibility

Intramural Units and Teams

An intramural unit refers to either a residence hall, a fraternity, a sorority or a recognized organization (on or off campus). At the end of the year, there will be competition among residence halls, fraternities, sororities and campus organizations to determine an overall champion.

Each player must play under their own name, be responsible for their own eligibility and familiarize themselves with the intramural rules.

Special or unusual cases involving eligibility will be decided by the Intramural Council and/or the Intramural Director. Example: A person wants to play in a particular sport but there is no team for the unit in which they should play.

All protests, except eligibility protests, must be made in writing and presented to the Intramural Office within 24 hours after the contest in question.

Eligibility protests should be called to the attention of the Intramural Office before the team competes in another game.

Protests based solely on a decision which involved accuracy of judgment on the part of the official shall not be considered.

Two successive forfeits by a team means automatic forfeiture of the remaining games and a revision of the schedule, if necessary, to compensate for the loss of a team or teams.


  • All participants must be current employees (or spouses) of CSC or currently–enrolled CSC students (or spouses).
  • Any student may participate in all scheduled events with a recognized campus organization, as long as they are an official member of that organization.
  • A player may play only on one team in each sport.
  • A player will be considered a member of that team, if they either enter an officially–scheduled intramural league contest or place their name on the official roster.
  • Each intramural unit may enter any number of teams in intramural competition, in any given activity. However, only the top three will count for league and place points.
  • A player may participate in intramurals for a fraternity or sorority, as long as they are an "active" member of the organization or have paid their pledge fee.
  • Teams and team members' names should be entered on official intramural entry forms, prior to the entry deadline.
  • Each team must have enough eligible team members listed on their form to provide sufficient players for the sport in question by the entry deadline.
  • The person listed as captain on an intramural team entry form shall assign any overall championship points earned by the team to the unit of their choice.
  • New players may be added at any time, provided they are eligible under intramural rules. Exception: New players can not be added for playoff games or post–season games.
  • Players must play at least two regularly–scheduled games or matches, prior to any tournaments or post–season games.
  • Junior college lettermen will be eligible to compete in intramurals.


  • Current varsity athletes: Individuals whose names appear on a team roster or eligibility list of an Intercollegiate athletic team at CSC, or any other four year institution, including transfer students, may not participate in a similar Intramural sport during the academic year in which they are so listed.
  • Candidates for varsity and freshmen intercollegiate squads are not eligible for intramural participation in sports for which they are practicing, if the intramural season for that sport has started. For example, fall softball candidates are ineligible to compete in intramural softball.
  • Any freshman or varsity squad member who drops from the squad after the intramural season in the same sport has started, will not be eligible to participate in the same intramural sport for the current year.
  • Track varsity or freshman candidates are ineligible for intramural track competition if they have participated in any freshman or varsity matches or meets, exhibition or otherwise, during the current school year.
  • Intercollegiate athletes who have been red shirted, who have become academically ineligible, or have been barred because of unprofessional are not eligible to participate in a similar intramural sport during the academic year in which they are so listed.
  • Former intercollegiate athletes are not eligible to compete in a similar intramural sports event until one full academic year has passed following their last intercollegiate affiliation.
  • All professional athletes are ineligible in the intramural sports of their specialty. Any collegiate lettermen at CSC or winners of comparable awards, must wait one year after having lettered to participate in the intramural sport of which they have lettered.

These rules apply to both men's and women's sports.

** Ineligibility infractions will result in a "loss" for that game, and the team will be ineligible for the post-season tournament.
