Wrestling eligibility?

I’m currently in the process of returning to school and I’m just wondering would I be too old to compete in college ? What’s the 10 semester rule ? If you go part time it doesn’t go against your eligibility? 

Are you d2 or d3?

Can someone explain the ten semester rule ? 

Basically, it states that once you enroll at a school, your "eligibility clock" starts ticking, and you have five years (10 semesters) to complete your four years of eligibility.

In the case of someone like yourself, who was once enrolled in school, whether you can compete again depends partly on where you intend to re-enroll.

That's the D1 rule which says they have 5 consecutive years (with some exceptions- severe injury or Olympic RS). D2/3 (not sure about NAIA but likely) don't need to have the semesters consecutive.

If you actually want to wrestle, contact a school you're interested in and tell them your situation. They can tell you exactly what eligibility you have left, if any. Even if you get correct information on this forum, it won't be specific to your educational and athletic history.

Yes, but the basic rule is actually the same in all three NCAA divisions, and the NAIA, presumably for students who are going through college uninterrupted.  

Like you say, if you want to take a semester or more off, for Olympic RS, mission trip, transfer to a school in a different division or different association, or just take extended time to do other things in life, the rules for retaining eligibility vary greatly between divisions.

I have no idea what you're saying. In D2/D3 you can leave school for a year or two for no good reason and the clock resumes where it was when you left. In D1 you have to have one of the specific reasons otherwise you've got 5 years to do 4.

I question the original poster's sincerity a bit. If you go back through his posting history, he has been coming to this forum to ask some version of this question periodically for six or seven years.
