Unfortunately, based on my research, I believe that the answer is no,
you are no longer eligible.
The information that you are looking for can be found in the 2005-06
NCAA Division I Manual, Bylaw, Article 14, ?Eligibility: Academic and
General Requirements?. This article includes Bylaw 14.2, the
?Five-Year Rule?, which states the following:
?A student-athlete shall complete his or her seasons of participation
within five calendar years from the beginning of the semester or
quarter in which the student-athlete first registered for a minimum
full-time program of studies in a collegiate institution, with time
spent in the armed services, on official church missions or with
recognized foreign aid services of the U.S. government being
2005-06 NCAA Division I Manual
?14.01.2 Academic Status. To be eligible to represent an institution
in intercollegiate athletics competition, a student-athlete shall be
enrolled in at least a minimum full-time program of studies, be in
good academic standing and maintain progress toward a baccalaureate or
equivalent degree. A waiver of the minimum full-time enrollment
requirement may be granted for a student enrolled in the final term of
the baccalaureate program (see Bylaw 126.96.36.199.1.3). Also, a student
may represent the institution while enrolled as a graduate or
professional student or while enrolled and seeking a second
baccalaureate degree at the same institution (see Bylaw 14.1.9).?
?14.1.9 Graduate Student/Postbaccalaureate Participation. A
student-athlete who is enrolled in a graduate or professional school
of the same institution from which he or she previously received a
baccalaureate degree, a student-athlete who is enrolled and seeking a
second baccalaureate or equivalent degree at the same institution, or
a student-athlete who has graduated and is continuing as a full-time
student at the same institution while taking course work that would
lead to the equivalent of another major or degree as defined and
documented by the institution, may participate in intercollegiate
athletics, provided the student has eligibility remaining and such
participation occurs within the applicable five-year period set forth
in Bylaw 14.2 (see also Bylaw 188.8.131.52.1.4).?
?14.2.1 Five-Year Rule. A student-athlete shall complete his or her
seasons of participation within five calendar years from the beginning
of the semester or quarter in which the student-athlete first
registered for a minimum full-time program of studies in a collegiate
institution, with time spent in the armed services, on official church
missions or with recognized foreign aid services of the U.S.
government being excepted. For foreign students, service in the armed
forces or on an official church mission of the student?s home country
is considered equivalent to such service in the United States.?
If I am reading this correctly, since you first enrolled in a
full-time program of studies in a collegiate institution more than
five years ago, you are no longer eligible.
