#280 Grades Q. Do I have to worry about a player's grades? Can they become academically ineligible?
  A. Yes, players can lose their eligibility for a semester if their cumulative GPA drops below 2.0 or if their grades for that term are below 2.0. To make sure a player doesn't become academically ineligible, make sure they are receiving plenty of study hall time (see the practice plan).
#282 Grades Q. What happens if one of my players becomes academically ineligible?
  A. You'll lose the player for the next semester (he'll still be on the roster and be able to practice but can't play in games). If his cumulative GPA is still not above 2.0 at the end of the next semester, he'll be academically ineligible for another semester. In addition, each time you lose a player to academics, your reputation will take a hit.
#283 Grades Q. How many academic terms are there per season?
  A. There are 2 academic terms per season. You'll receive a mid-term report around game 6, then the final grades will be posted around game 12 for the first term. Around game 18 you'll receive another mid-term report and around game 24 you'll receive final grades for the 2nd term. Cumulative grades will be updated after the final grades are posted for each term.
#284 Grades Q. If a player finishes the season with less than a 2.0 GPA, will be eligible for next season?
  A. Yes. The player will be enrolled in summer school to bring his GPA up to 2.0 - of course you'll see much less improvement in the off-season for that player and he may actually get worse based on how much time he'll be in class over the summer.
#673 Grades Q. How much study hall does it take to keep a kid academically eligible?
  A. There's no way to guarantee a passing grade, but you can increase study hall time to maximize the odds of a player qualifying. Each kid is different, but giving him study hall time when he's already in trouble may be a case of too little too late. Also, study hall minutes are cumulative over the course of a grade period. For example, having 10 minutes there for the entire grade period is about twice as helpful as having 0 minutes until mid-terms and then putting in 10 minutes. So be careful with a strategy of skimping on minutes until you see what mid-term grades are.
