Student Athletes

Division I Initial Eligibility Changes Effective with Freshmen in 2016

Division I Initial-Eligibility Changes - Class of 2016

 

The changes adopted by the Division I Board of Directors continue to use a student-athlete’s grades in high school core courses in combination with the student-athlete’s ACT or SAT score and core-course accumulation.

Prospective student-athletes who achieve the current minimum initial-eligibility standard on the test score-GPA sliding scale with at least a minimum 2.0 core-course GPA would continue to be eligible for athletically related financial aid during the first year of enrollment and practice during the first regular academic term of enrollment. Student-athletes serving this academic redshirt year would have to successfully complete nine semester or eight quarter hours during their first academic term to be eligible for practice during their second term.  

For immediate access to competition, prospective student-athletes will be required to present at least a 2.3 GPA and an increased sliding-scale credential. Specifically, prospects need to earn about a half-point higher GPA for a given test score compared to the standard for aid and practice. For example, an SAT score of 1,000 would require a 2.5 high school core-course GPA for competition and a 2.0 high school core-course GPA for aid and practice.

Incoming student-athletes will be required to successfully complete 10 of the 16 total required core courses before the start of their senior year in high school. Seven of those 10 courses must be in English, math and science.

NCAA Eligibility Center

NCAA Eligibility Center Overview


In 2007, the NCAA established the “NCAA Eligibility Center”, LLC in Indianapolis, IN. This new center replaced the Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse which was operated by the ACT. The new center will ensure that student-athletes pass the same standards that were established by the NCAA in order to play as a freshman in college. They will also certify the student-athletes’ amateur status and assist high schools with the process of maintaining their core course listings. The certification process is only started when an NCAA institution makes a request on a student-athlete.  So, Counselors should send completed transcripts to the Center in a timely manner so it does not impede the certification process.

WARNING: Insure that all documentation sent to the Eligibility Center is accurate and ALL core courses are listed on the school’s approved core course list. Once the eligibility center has received all required documentation, including a final high school transcript with proof of graduation, they will NOT accept any revised documentation. A waiver procedure must now be initiated by the NCAA institution recruiting the student-athlete.

WHO NEEDS TO REGISTER?

Any student-athlete that wishes to compete in college at the NCAA D-I or D-II level must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center

WHEN DO YOU REGISTER? 

Student-athletes should register with the Eligibility Center during the spring of their junior year.

HOW DO YOU REGISTER?

You may ONLY register electronically online at http://www.eligibilitycenter.org/ online.

WHAT ARE THE FEES FOR SENDING TEST SCORES TO THE CENTER?

If students take the test before registering with the Eligibility Center then they must pay either $12.50 (for SAT scores) or $8.50 (ACT scores) to have the scores sent to the eligibility center.

If students register with the Eligibility Center first, then take the SAT or ACT test, they will NOT pay a fee as long as they put the code “9999” where it asks where you want the scores sent to.

* For NCAA purposes, ALL SAT or ACT test scores must come directly from the testing agency and will NOT be accepted via an official high school transcript.

CAN COURSES TAKEN IN EIGHTH GRADE COUNT?

Courses taken in the eighth grade MAY be used to meet core course requirements, provided they are approved high school core courses (e.g., Algebra I, Spanish 1, Freshman Composition).

And, the eighth grade courses MUST appear on the student's high school transcript and they must also count towards high school graduation credit.

WHAT IF A STUDENT-ATHLETE TRANSFERS TO ANOTHER HIGH SCHOOL?

If a student transfers from one high school to another, courses taken at high school “A” must be accompanied by an official transcript from that school, to the new high school. They may NOT just be added to the transcript of high school “B”.
