NCAA Eligibility Center

National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)

The NCAA is the governing body of athletic programs at more than 1,200 colleges and universities, conferences and other organizations.

The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic credentials of all students who want to play sports at a NCAA Division I, II or III institution as freshmen. In order to practice, compete and receive athletics scholarships, students need to meet certain academic benchmarks. Academic eligibility requirements are listed on the back.

 

How to Register

It is the responsibility of the student to register with NCAA Eligibility Center by the beginning of his/her senior year. The Eligibility Center will evaluate a student’s academic credentials once the following information has been received:

Step 1: Complete online registration (www.eligibilitycenter.org)

Step 2: Fee payment ($70)

Step 3: SAT or ACT test score on file from the respective testing agency

Step 4: Transcript(s) from all schools or programs attended

 

Transcript Release Form

The Transcript Release Form is critical. By filling it out completely and signing it, you are authorizing each of the high schools you have attended to send your transcript, proof of graduation, and other academic information to the NCAA Eligibility Center.


After registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center, fill out the Transcript Release Form and give it to the counseling office. If you have attended any other high school(s) outside of the LBUSD, a copy of the release form should be given to an official at that school also.
 

Registration Fee

There is a $70 registration fee. The counseling office may waive the registration fee if you have previously qualified for and received a waiver for the ACT or SAT fee.

 

For additional information, please visit the NCAA website at:
