for each sport is comprised of recruited studentathletes who are on the team's varsity roster as of the
first date of competition of the championship segment.

country roster) on athletics aid in the fall
semester who withdraws from the institution at
the end of the fall semester, and the first
competition for indoor track does not take place
until after the start of the spring semester, what
cohort would he be included in for the fall?

only once in determination of APP financial aid
– Indicate "received aid" as "yes" for each sport in
the student detail module.
