• COLLEGE ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY - NCAA

    Updated 03-02-2016 jkb

    If you intend to participate in NCAA Divisions I or II athletics as a college freshman, you must register with the NCAA Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse prior to graduation.  Follow the application directions on the Clearinghouse website:  www.eligibilitycenter.org.  The Clearinghouse will issue a preliminary certification report when you have submitted all of your materials.  The chart below shows what your courses must include at a minimum.

     

    Only courses that satisfy the NCAA definition of a core course can be used to calculate your NCAA GPA. No special values are allowed for “+” or “-“ grades.  It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that NCAA eligibility requirements have been met.  For an up-to-date listing of ISD #728 NCAA approved courses by high school, visit the NCAA Eligibility Center Web site and use the following codes: 

    ERHS:240720          RHS:242110   ZHS:242764

     

    https://web1.ncaa.org/hsportal/exec/hsAction.  The NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse uses this list of courses in establishing the certification status of student-athletes from your school. (If a core class is not listed or you have further questions, please see your guidance counselor.)

     

    After graduation, the Clearinghouse will review your final transcript to make a final certification decision according to NCAA standards.
