Varsity athletes officially represent Duke University in National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) competitions away from campus. Accordingly, when these athletes are unable to attend classes during official Duke competitions, their absences are excused. If athletes choose to compete in non-Duke or non-NCAA athletic competitions, i.e. National Team events, Olympic training events, competitions as an unattached individual etc., the absence is not officially excused. In these cases, the decision to excuse an absence rests with the instructor (see the fifth bullet below).
The following provisions and procedures apply.
