NCAA Eligibility Center

Register at the beginning of your Jr Year with the NCAA Eligibility Center:

The NCAA Eligibility Center is the first step in the recruitment process. The Eligibility Center handles all inquiries regarding an individual's initial-eligibility status. The Eligibility Center also maintains and processes all of the initial eligibility certifications.


NCAA Sliding Scale

Initial NCAA eligibility is determined on a sliding scale. Student-athletes are required to pass 32 semesters of core classes during high school with at least a "C" average (2.0 GPA).

It is also required that the student-athlete take the ACT (or SAT). The higher the core GPA, the lower the standardized test score needs to be to gain eligibility. And vice versa!

Core Courses: Math, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, English, Foreign Language, and Philosophy Courses.

Non-Core Courses: PE, Religion, Independent Study Courses
