THIS POST IS FROM 2007!
It is now 2011. It would be pretty foolish to think the information in this post is current.
As many of you know Nationals is now just around the corner! With this wonderful time of year, also comes the necessary pain of enrollment verification.
In order to enter the field of competition a player must be a full-time student at the University (this means the school or campuses must have the same admission process). The primary exception for this is graduating seniors that do not need the full-time credit load to meet their graduation requirements.
I have checked, and I believe all of the Class A Universities offer Enrollment Verification services (albeit they are occasionally under different names). In order for the document to be sufficient it must be official, and unopened; it must show the number of credits you are taking, your current status (as of March 1st), and all other standard information needed for this type of verification.
You should request two Enrollment Verifications per player, one to be mailed to me at the address below, and one to be brought to the competition. I am going to suggest that all of the teams have their prospective registrars mail all of the verifications to the team captains and then the team captain compile all of the team envelopes in a single envelope that may be assigned a tracking #. I will require all of the necessary paperwork by Wed, April 18th (Overnight it if you must), failure to provide the necessary paperwork will result in potential fines (or worse, the ineligibility of some players).
The verification will be referenced to the Roster listed on APPA’s website, please ensure they match to avoid any discrepancies at the event. Please be aware that all players that are on the APPA roster (and are checking in) will be required to sign a release authorizing the NCPA to contact your respective universities to confirm any information that relates to players eligibility.
Please mail all appropriate documentation to:
