College-bound student athletes who wish to participate in Division I or Division II sports must first go through an initial eligibility certification process by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

In order to be eligible, student athletes must meet certain NCAA standards for grade point average (GPA) in core curriculum courses, as well as SAT/ACT scores.

The NCAA recommends that student-athletes start planning in ninth grade to earn the best possible grades. Make an appointment with your counselor to make sure that you are taking the correct classes for the NCAA core course list for your high school. This list is available through your counselor or at eligibilitycenter.org.
