Hardin-Simmons has a nationally recognized athletics program even though the university does not award any
athletic scholarships. It is our philosophy that athletics, for the participant as well as the spectator, is an integral
part of the college experience. Therefore, any student wishing to participate in intercollegiate athletics is
encouraged to do so. We also encourage all students to support our teams with their attendance.
HSU sponsors seven sports for women and seven for men. Women’s sports include volleyball, softball, soccer,
tennis, golf, basketball, and cross country & track. Men’s sports include football, soccer, baseball, golf, tennis,
basketball, and cross country & track.
HSU is a member of the American Southwest Conference, which is affiliated with the NCAA Division III.
Athletic Participation Requirements
All students who represent the university in athletics must be concurrently enrolled in at least 12 semester hours
and making satisfactory progress toward graduation. They must have attained at least a 1.60 GPA if they have
attempted 12-32 semester hours, a 1.80 GPA if they have attempted 33-48 semester hours, or a 2.00 GPA if they
have attempted 49 or more semester hours.
In order for a student to continue to represent the university in any of the above-mentioned activities, a student
must have completed 21 hours in the last academic year. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all students
involved in school activities are also making satisfactory progress toward a degree. Hours that are taken during
May Term, Summer I and Summer II will be counted toward the calendar year.
All directors or sponsors of extracurricular activities will be required to turn in a list of all students who desire to
participate to the Registrar’s Office. The Registrar will approve all students for participation.
Student-athletes who qualify for championship-level play that conflicts with finals week should be given the option
of taking their final exams either before or after completion of the athletic event. It is the student-athlete’s
responsibility to notify his or her professors of the conflict, to work with professors to schedule an alternate date
for the exam, and to complete any necessary university-related paperwork prior to leaving for the athletic event.
