NCAA Course Eligibility for College-Bound Athletes

If students are planning to enroll in college and wish to participate in Division I or Division II sports, they must be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Center. There are several steps in this process. Students should initiate the process early in their sophomore year. For more detailed information and the application materials, contact the Counseling Office or refer to the NCAA Eligibility Center online at this link.

Note: Most flex credit and correspondence courses do not meet NCAA eligibility requirements. Please check with your counselor about specific requirements.

The NCAA Eligibility Center has suggested a four-year timeline to ensure that students are on track to graduate high school and ensure NCAA eligibility as a college athlete.  Be sure to check with your coaches and Athletic Offices for more information.
