What is the NCAA Eligibility Center?
The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies that college-bound athletes who wish to compete in Division I or II athletic programs have met necessary academic credentials and are of amateur status. NCAA colleges and universities set these regulations to ensure all student-athletes meet NCAA standards, including required core courses.

To qualify for NCAA eligibility and view core course requirements, register with the NCAA Eligibility Center by completing the Student Release Form and amateurism questionnaire during your junior year.

Note: “The NCAA does not endorse or affiliate with the services of this Web site. The parent/guardian of a prospective student-athlete should ensure that programs are in compliance with NCAA bylaws. The NCAA Web site is the only place to receive the most current and accurate information about NCAA rules and regulations.”

What is the NCAA Guide for the College Bound Student Athlete?
The NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete offers instructional guidelines for high school student-athletes who wish to pursue athletics at the collegiate level. Every student-athlete and parent needs a copy of this guide. To receive a hard copy, call the NCAA at 888-388-9748 or download the online version (Adobe Reader required).

The NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete contains information on the following:

Amateurism-Eligibility Requirements
Academic-Eligibility Requirements
Recruiting Rules for Division I, II, and III
Core Courses, GPA, Tests, and Special Conditions
NCAA Eligibility Center
Questions to Ask as You Consider Colleges
Information for Parents and Guardians
Details for High School Counselors and Athletics Administrators

Please remember that meeting the NCAA academic rules does not guarantee your admission into a college. You must still apply and be accepted to the institution you want to attend.
