Students who plan to participate as college freshmen in Division I or II athletic programs must register and be certified by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse. Students may register through the NCAA Eligibility website, www.eligibilitycenter.org. Students participating in the free/reduced lunch program are exempt from the registration fee.
NCAA eligibility requirements may change annually; therefore, future college athletes must regularly check the NCAA website for updates. Students should specifically review core course requirements, SAT/ACT requirements, recruiting rules and amateur status. There are specific GPA and SAT/ACT requirements for scholarships. For more information, see your counselor, the athletic department and www.ncaaclearinghouse.net.
