Eligibility

To be eligible for nomination, a student-athlete must be at least ten (10) years removed from his or her academic cohort's final year of enrollment at Santa Clara University and the student must have graduated from the University, though not necessarily in the same year as his or her cohort. Nominators may appeal to the Committee to make an exception to this rule in the case of extreme or unforeseen circumstances impacting graduation. A former student-athlete nominee must have been a member of a recognized varsity sport and must have participated in a minimum of two (2) seasons of intercollegiate competition. The credentials of a former student-athlete nominee must include noteworthy athletic achievement, as determined by the Committee. A nominee other than a former student-athlete may be selected to the Hall of Fame if they are recognized by the Committee to have made significant contributions to the Santa Clara Athletic Department. A nominee's character and ethical standing also will be evaluated by the Committee, as any nominee’s activities after enrollment at Santa Clara should be consistent with the purpose and values of the University. Individuals both living and deceased are eligible for selection.
