    YOUR PATH TO THE STUDENT- ATHLETE EXPERIENCE:  click here -  a  presentation that covers the registration process, the basic academic and amateurism requirements, and includes other helpful resources for prospective student-athletes.
    These instructions pertain to students considering participation in intercollegiate athletics at the Division I or II level. The following steps should be taken to ensure eligibility by registering with the NCAA Clearinghouse:

    STEP 1:         It is recommended that the student-athlete registers in his/her junior year, beginning in the month of May.  To register the student athlete needs to apply online at: www.eligibilitycenter.org.


    STEP 2:         After the student registration is complete you must go to the North Counseling Center and request that his/her transcripts be sent to the NCAA Clearinghouse. One will be sent with a final junior transcript and one will be sent with a final senior transcript.

                            (If the student has attended more than one high school, each high school must receive a copy of the completed Student Release form.  A transcript must be sent from each high school attended.)


    STEP 3:         All prospective student-athletes intending to enroll in an NCAA Division I or II institution for the first time on or after August 1, 2007 must complete the NCAA Amateurism Certification questionnaire.

    STEP 4:          Test scores must be reported directly from either ACT or SAT. They will no longer be accepted from the high school transcript.

                            When registering to take the SAT’s or ACT’s you should include the NCAA as one of your free choices to where to send your scores. The code for the NCAA is 9999.  If you did not do this, go online for SAT scores to collegeboard.com or for ACT scores to actstudent.org and send your scores directly to the NCAA Clearinghouse.


    STEP 5:          Upon completion of the junior year,the final junior transcript will be sent to the Clearinghouse.  The student will receive an initial clearing statement from the Clearinghouse in the fall of the student’s senior year.


    STEP 6:          Before the end of the senior year, you must request the Final Amateurism Certification for each sport that you will participate in.  Log back into your account at eligibilitycenter.org.  Click on MYPLANNER.

                            Then select the red “Request Final Amateurism” button and follow the instructions.


    STEP 7:         After graduation, the student’s final senior transcript with the exact date of graduation will be sent to the Clearinghouse from the high school.  The student will then receive a final clearing statement from the Clearinghouse.


                            In completing the registration forms, the high school CEEB code is required.  Our high school CEEB CODE is:  394685

    According to the NCAA, out of the nearly 8 million high school athletes, only 6 percent (nearly half a million) will compete in NCAA sports in college.  Of those collegiate athletes, it is predicted that 2 percent will go on to play professional sports.  So, for the typical student, college should mean more wins off the field than on it.
