If you plan to participate in athletics at a Division I or Division II college or university, you must first register with the NCAA. The NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) is the organization that checks your high school credentials and transcripts to make sure you have what it takes to be a successful student athlete in college. Before you walk onto a field or court, you must go through the NCAA Eligibility Center.
It is important to start planning early for this process, ideally by the end of 9th grade. The NCAA requires students to enroll in very specific "Core" courses. Students must also acheive a qualifying score on the sliding GPA plus ACT/SAT score scale. School Counselors can help students sign up for the proper classes and exams, but only if they know college athletics is part of their post-secondary plan.
