NCAA Eligibility

 

Freshman and Sophomores

  •  Start planning now!
  •  Work hard to get the best grades possible.
  •  Take classes that match your high school’s List of NCAA Courses. The NCAA Eligibility Center will use only approved core courses to certify your initial eligibility.
  • You can access and print your high school’s List of NCAA Courses at www.eligibilitycenter.org. Click the NCAA College- Bound Student-Athlete link to enter and then navigate to the “Resources” tab and select “U.S. Students” where you will find the link for the List of NCAA Courses.
  • At the beginning of your sophomore year, complete your online registration at www.eligibilitycenter.org.
  • If you fall behind, do not take short cuts. Classes you take must be four-year college preparatory and must meet NCAA requirements.

 

Juniors

  • Register to take the ACT, SAT or both and use the NCAA Eligibility Center code “9999” as a score recipient. Doing this sends your official score directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
  • Continue to take college prepratory courses. Double check to make sure the courses you have taken match your school’s List of NCAA Courses.
  • Ask your high school counselor to send an official transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center after completing your junior year. If you have attended more than one high school, the NCAA Eligibility Center will need official transcripts from all high schools attended. (The NCAA Eligibility Center does NOT accept faxed or emailed transcripts/test scores.) The NCAA Eligibility Center does accept transcripts electronically through Docufide/Parchment, e-Scrip Safe, ConnectEdu, National Transcript Center and Xap.
  • Before registering for classes for your senior year, check with your high school counselor to determine the number of core courses that you need to complete your senior year.

Why Career Planning in High School?

The career planning needs of high school students differ from those of college students. During the high school years, you should get to know yourself. Now is the time to learn about who you are, and what you are good at. How can you do that? Below are some activities that will help:

  • Take lots of classes to learn subjects, strengths and interests.
  • Learn to develop new skills through classes, clubs, activities, etc.
  • Begin to explore career options. Talk to advisors, counselors, teachers, parents, and friends. Do some research into careers that interest you.
  • Find part-time jobs or voluntary experiences which allow you to try different career areas.
