NCAA Eligibility

NCAA Eligibility Center

If you are a student-athlete interested in playing sports in college it is important to understand how your high school years can affect your eligibility to play at the college level. Please read through the NCAA documents provided to understand the process for them to compete at the next level. This would include both Division I and Division II athletics. Each division has separate guidelines.

The NCAA Clearinghouse is an organization outside of the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletics Association) which performs academic record evaluations to determine if a prospective student-athlete is eligible to participate at an NCAA Division I or II college as a freshman student-athlete. Please see Division I Initial Eligibility Requirements for a breakdown of those minimum academic requirements.

All freshman and two-year college transfers who do not have an associate degree and would like to participate in any sport at an NCAA member institution (Division I or II) must register for the academic portion of the Clearinghouse.

To register, please visit or come see College Advisors in the Advising Center (rm 112) for assistance.
