NCAA Eligibility Center

The NCAA Eligibility Center (Clearinghouse) is the organization responsible for certifying the academic eligibility for practice, competition, and financial aid of all prospective student-athletes for Division I and II. Under NCAA rules, incoming college freshmen must be certified as eligible by the NCAA Eligibility Center before they can be involved in college sports.

Speak to your school counselor about completing the necessary requirements for academic eligibility and to register for an NCAA ID. For the Clearinghouse to use courses from a transcript, the course must be on the high school’s list of approved core courses. Core courses are focused on the following subject areas: English, mathematics, natural/physical science, social science, foreign language, non-doctrinal religion or philosophy.
