Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are there any limitations to an international student becoming a student athlete?
A: International students may participate in amateur athletics if they maintain their nonimmigrant student status. Sports and the arts can be a great melting pot and should be encouraged as a way for students to integrate. English-only as a policy while on the field needs to be encouraged for safety reasons. Be aware that athletically there may be cultural limitations – in female dress, for example. Interruptions to follow prayer schedules need to be tolerated.
