    ** For updates on NCAA Athletic Eligibility in regards to Covid-19 please click here. **
    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 Eligibility Center:

    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, the High School Counseling Office will receive a notification to send the student's transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center. 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 must complete the NCAA Amateurism Certification questionnaire.

    STEP 4:         In January 2023, NCAA Divisions I and II adopted legislation to remove standardized test scores from initial eligibility requirements.

    STEP 5:          Upon completion of the junior year, the final junior transcript will be sent to the Eligibility Center.  The student will receive an initial clearing statement from the Eligibility Center 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 Eligibility Center from the high school.  

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

                      **Students should schedule a meeting with their school counselor prior to their junior year to discuss NCAA eligibility.

      The NCAA Coordinator, Ms. Jennifer Scudder, can be reached at jls68@scasd.org
