NCAA Eligibility Center
WHAT IS THE ELIGIBILITY CENTER?
The Eligibility Center maintains and processes all of the initial-eligibility certifications as well as amateurism certifications. Both are necessary if an individual wants to compete in intercollegiate athletics.
WHO MUST REGISTER?
All high school prospective student-athletes who want to compete in athletics at the collegiate level as well as all junior college student-athletes who are entering a Division I or II institution for the first time.
WHEN SHOULD I REGISTER?
You are able to register with the Eligibility Center at any time. However, it is recommended that high school students register at the beginning of their junior year. High school students must be registered with the EC prior to making an official visit to any NCAA institution during their senior year of high school and prior to signing a National Letter of Intent. Two-year transfer students must register prior to signing a National Letter of Intent.
HOW DOES THE REGISTRATION PROCESS WORK?
You must register online and pay the registration fee. High school students must submit high school transcripts, proof of graduation, ACT or SAT test scores, and complete the amateurism questions. Two-year transfer students must complete the amateurism questions.
