In order for a student’s academic certification to be processed, the student must have ACT or SAT scores submitted to the NCAA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how they can request to have their test scores sent.
Test scores on a high school transcript will not be used. Students may take the ACT or the SAT an unlimited number of times prior to full-time collegiate enrollment, and the best score will be used in the final academic certification. Test scores are matched to the student’s NCAA Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.
Senior student-athletes, who are planning on attending a NCAA school next year, are reminded to complete a Transcript Release Form in the Registrar’s Office to have your final transcript sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
