NCAA Eligibility Center

The NCAA Eligibility Center has launched a new website at to help high school student-athletes successfully transition to college. The enhanced online content gives student-athletes and counselors a broad look at the initial-eligibility process and detailed information about common eligibility situations.

The new content is part of the NCAA Eligibility Center’s continuing response to customer requests for key pieces of information student-athletes should know as they consider college. Student-athletes are guided through current and upcoming initial-eligibility requirements, recruiting guidelines, and timelines for staying on track in high school. Additional webpages address initial-eligibility situations unique to international, home-school and non-traditional students.

A wide range of frequently-asked questions addressing issues from academic and amateurism eligibility to high school and core-course review are easily searchable and will be expanded in the future.
