Below are a series of recommendations provided by the NCAA on steps to be taken to ensure eligibility at NCAA institutions. For more information about eligibility visit the NCAA Eligibility Center Online.

Grade 9


  • Verify with your high school guidance counselor and the online core-course listing to make sure you are on track.


Grade 10 

  • Verify with your high school guidance counselor and the online core-course listing to make sure you are on track.


Grade 11

  • Register with the eligibility center.

  • Make sure you are still on course to meet core-course requirements (verify you have the correct number of core courses and that the core courses are on your high school’s 48-H with the NCAA Eligibility Center). After your junior year, have your high school guidance counselor send a copy of your transcript. If you have attended any other high schools, make sure a transcript is sent to the eligibility center from each high school.

  • When taking the ACT or SAT, request test scores to be sent to the eligibility center (the code is “9999″). Begin your amateurism questionnaire.


Grade 12

  • When taking the ACT or SAT, request test scores to be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center (the code is “9999″).

  • Complete amateurism questionnaire and sign the final authorization signature online on or after April 1 if you are expecting to enroll in college in the fall semester. (If you are expecting to enroll for spring semester, sign the final authorization signature on or after October 1 of the year prior to enrollment.)

  • Have your high school guidance counselor send a final transcript with proof of graduation to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
