If you are a senior who is planning to participate in Division I or II sports as a college freshman, fall is the time to register to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. You must do this in order to qualify for college athletics at the Division I or II level.
The NCAA Eligibility Center is in place to make sure student athletes take certain amount of “core” courses in high school. Core courses include math, science, social science, English, foreign language, and some elective courses in these areas.
ACT and SAT Student Score Reports and scores taken directly from a transcript are NOT usable. Test scores must be sent to the Eligibility Center from the appropriate agency using code 9999.
After April 1st, please have your senior student-athletes request final amateurism certification. This must be completed in order for your student-athletes to be eligible to compete in the fall.
Also, if you are a student-athlete and wish to compete at a college that belongs to the NAIA, there is a registration process to go through. You must register at www.playnaia.org.
