Study Hall

Study Hall required hours are driven by academic performance or lack thereof. Coaches can mandate a set number of hours a student-athlete must be in study hall. Additionally, freshman and new transfer student-athlete required hours may be different than continuing student-athletes who are required to participate in study hall.

Study Hall – Rules and Guidelines

Hours of Operation:  Three Categories

For Freshmen and New Transfer student-athletes

  • Monday – Thursday – 8:30 am – 9:00 pm
  • Fridays – 8:30 am – 4:00 pm

For student-athletes on Academic Probation

Academic Probation Student-Athletes – “ these students are strongly recommended to complete hours during the work day while full-time staff are present and with a planned time management grid.”


Study hall hours are reported for the week beginning on Sunday and ending on Friday. Coaches will receive an official copy of the study hall report on Friday afternoons.

Student-athletes are required to sign-in and sign-out to receive credit for study hall. FAILURE to sign-in or sign-out will result in “0” credits for study hall (NO EXCEPTIONS)

Required study hours are excused when a team is on the road traveling; however, it is STRONGLY encouraged for each team to set up study hall for those required to complete hours. Coaches need to structure organized study sessions while on the road unless provisions are made (hotel room and travel) for ASSA advisor to set up study sessions.

Study Hall Requirements

Hour Requirements

Study hall hours are driven by academic performance or the lack thereof. Student-athletes are required to earn a certain number of study hall hours per week in the ASSA facilities depending on their grade level, CGPA, and coach’s requirements. The requirements set by ASSA are as follows:

  • All Freshmen & Transfer students (first two semesters): 8 hours a week
  • Recommendation Upperclassmen based upon CGPA:
    • Tier I 3.0 and above: 0 hours
    • Tier II 2.99- 2.60: 6 hours ONLY
    • Tier III 2.59 or under: 6 hours with Objective Based Study Hall

Objective Based Study Hall requires students meet face to face with their athletic academic advisor and at-risk specialist to develop a plan of action for identified assignments. Students are REQUIRED to meet with athletic academic advisor (1x) and at-risk specialist (1x) a minimum of 2x a week. Students will gain hours via our swipe system, however these hours are contingent upon assignments & hour completion.

If a student-athlete receives a D or F at midterms, an additional 2 hours per week will be added for a maximum of 8 hours per week. Study hall hours for each week will start on Sunday and end Friday
