Penn State campuses extend sports eligibility
This change adjusts the guidelines of the current Commonwealth Campus Athletic Conference (CCAC) to coincide with the campuses’ expansion of degree offerings from two to four years. As a result, athletes will be able to stay with the same sport for four years instead of having to change to a different sport, a requirement that had existed because some of the opponents were two-year schools.
