The National Collegiate Athletic Association is a member-led organization dedicated to the well-being and lifelong success of college athletes*.
*Athletes who are interested in playing college sports at NCAA Division I or II schools should carefully follow these steps before the end of your Junior year. Although Division III does not offer athletic scholarships there are opportunities for academic grants or needs-based scholarships.
1. Make an appointment with your counselor to review your credits, grades and ACT scores.

2. Take the ACT your Junior year (it's offered on your campus in the Spring) and send scores directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center by using code 9999 on the ACT information form.
(Please note: Students who qualify for Free/Reduce lunch are eligible for TWO Fee Waivers in addition to the school test date, see your counselor for more information.)
3. Register with the NCAA Eligibility Center, using this link.
Use this checklist to make sure you have everything needed to register.
The best time to register is immediately after completing your junior year, July 1st.
(Please Note: Students who use a Fee Waiver to take the ACT / SAT or PSAT, qualify to have the NCAA registration fee waived.)
4. Have your transcripts sent to NCAA (see the registration clerk by the attendance office).
The NCAA wants your 6th semester grades to be included, so do this near the end of your Junior year.
5. Shortly before graduation, order a final transcript to be sent to NCAA.
