NCAA Eligibility for high school students looking to play College sports
Any high school students (public, private, Christian or Homeschool), looking to play a sport in college, must register and meet the eligibility requirements as approved by the NCAA prior to being able to participate. The information on acceptable requirements for GPA, SAT and/or ACT scores as well as the paperwork needed are found on the NCAA website. Below is the link to the website. If you have any interest at all, you need to register and get the information to them asap, especially if you are entering your senior year or are in your senior year of high school.
Division I Initial-Eligibility Changes – Class of 2016
The changes adopted by the Division I Board of Directors continue to use a student-athlete’s grades in high school core courses in combination with the student-athlete’s ACT or SAT score and core-course accumulation.
Prospective student-athletes who achieve the current minimum initial-eligibility standard on the test score-GPA sliding scale with at least a minimum 2.0 core-course GPA would continue to be eligible for athletically related financial aid during the first year of enrollment and practice during the first regular academic term of enrollment. Student-athletes serving this academic redshirt year would have to successfully complete nine semester or eight quarter hours during their first academic term to be eligible for practice during their second term.
For immediate access to competition, prospective student-athletes will be required to present at least a 2.3 GPA and an increased sliding-scale credential. Specifically, prospects need to earn about a half-point higher GPA for a given test score compared to the standard for aid and practice. For example, an SAT score of 1,000 would require a 2.5 high school core-course GPA for competition and a 2.0 high school core-course GPA for aid and practice.
Incoming student-athletes will be required to successfully complete 10 of the 16 total required core courses before the start of their senior year in high school. Seven of those 10 courses must be in English, math and science.
