NCAA Eligibility Center

To be successful in college, students need to be prepared for college coursework. Student-athletes are not an exception to this fact and have additional responsibilities if participating in Division I or Division II athletics is their goal. To compete in collegiate athletics at a NCAA Division I or II school, you need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center.

In Division I and Division II athletic programs, the NCAA sets academic initial-eligibility standards that take into account GPA, standardized test scores, core courses taken in high school and the grades earned in those core courses. Division III schools hold student-athletes to the same overall standards for the institution in which they’re enrolling. All student-athletes also must meet the unique acceptance requirements of the college or university they plan to attend (which may exceed NCAA standards).
