Achievement in the Classroom
The success the Rams enjoy on the field or in the arena is not nearly as important as the achievements of individual student-athletes in the classroom. The university and entire athletic department is committed to providing the most efficient and effective support for all student-athletes.

Student-Athlete Advisory Committee

The Department of Athletics has published this handbook as a reference for students to use throughout their student-athlete careers. By reading the handbook, student-athletes will become aware of the importance the athletic department places on developing the whole person, academically, socially and athletically.
The handbook is intended to serve as a general guide to assist in answering many of the frequently asked questions that arise. Important information on university policies as well as those of the NCAA and Mountain West Conference is included for reference.
The department of intercollegiate athletics at Colorado State has an outstanding group of coaches and support staff. Student-athletes should never hesitate to contact their coach, trainer, academic coordinator or other staff members with questions or concerns.
