UNIVERSITY INTERSCHOLASTIC LEAGUE (UIL) ELIGIBILITY and EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY

The University Interscholastic League (UIL) uses the following guidelines at the beginning of each school year to determine participation in any school-sponsored activity: 


  • Students must be promoted to the ninth grade for UIL participation.
  • Students beginning their second year of high school must have earned 5 credits, which count toward state high school graduation requirements.
  • Students beginning their third year of high school either must have earned a total of 10 credits which count toward state high school graduation requirements or have earned a total of 5 credits which count toward state high school graduation requirements during the preceding 12 months.
  • Students beginning their fourth year of high school either must have earned a total of 15 credits which count toward state high school graduation credits or have earned a total of 5 credits which count toward state high school graduation requirements during the preceding 12 months.

Students must maintain a minimum of 70 in every course at the beginning of each six-week period to remain eligible for participation in UIL and extracurricular activities. If a student fails a course, he/she is ineligible for the following three-week period. Ineligibility becomes effective seven days after the end of the six-week period. The student will regain eligibility for competition seven days after the three-week period if the student has passing grades of a 70 or above in all courses at that time. Dickinson High School publishes a UIL calendar showing all relevant dates for participation.
The mission of the Dickinson Independent School District is to ensure that all students have successful learning opportunities that help them reach their full potential and add quality throughout their lives.
