Saint John's realizes the importance of athletics in its tradition which complements our liberal arts educational objectives. As a Benedictine, residential, academic community, we encourage, in part through our programs in athletics, the development of life-long recreational interests, involvement in community activities, awareness of the need for common efforts, leadership skills and an attitude of concern for physical and emotional health.
Saint John’s affirms in principle and in practice the guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletic Conference Division III (NCAA) and the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, Men's Division (MIAC) regarding student recruitment, academic achievement, course selection, accommodations and financial aid. We control, budget and staff our athletic program through the same general procedures as apply to other departments within the University
Students are responsible for completing and signing the medical fitness and emergency information card, distributed by the Athletic Trainer, as a condition of participation in varsity athletics. Any athlete who receives a DWI disqualifies himself from participation in varsity athletics. See University Policies, DWI (DUI).
