Student Activities Participation Eligibility Requirements
Luther College provides a variety of educational, social, spiritual, and service organizations to which students may belong. Participation in these organizations is encouraged as a means of developing leadership skills, improving academic and social skills, and becoming an active member of the Luther community.
- Equal Opportunity. It is the policy of Luther College to provide equal opportunity for all qualified persons in its educational programs and activities. The college does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, handicap, national origin, age, sex, or sexual orientation in its programs and activities.
- Eligibility. Full-time student status is required for participation in student organizations and college-sponsored activities. Students may participate when groups continue activities (such as group tours) immediately after the regular semester calendar, or in January. In such cases, the student must have been enrolled as a full-time student for the previous semester. Exceptions to the full-time status include situations where students are in academic transition to graduation and do not need full credit loads to graduate. The Dean for Student Life may grant other exceptions for part- time student participation. The faculty committee that monitors academic progress may restrict participation in recognized campus organizations or activities for any student who has been dismissed or is on academic probation. Participation in intercollegiate athletics is also subject to the eligibility requirements established by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the lowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (IIAC). Please consult with intercollegiate athletics for specific requirements.
- Non-Students. Most student organizations, activities, and access to privileges within the college community are intended for enrolled and degree-seeking students. The vice presidents may authorize exceptions that allow participation of non-students (includes the category of community enrolled and reduced rate students) for events, activities and organizations within their respective administrative areas.
