National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)
NCAA Athletic Eligibility - www.eligibilitycenter.org
All students planning to enroll in college as a freshman and wanting to participate in Division I or Division
II athletics must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center (formerly called the NCAA Clearinghouse).
The Eligibility Center was established to ensure consistent application of NCAA initial-eligibility
requirements for all prospective student athletes at all member institutions. It is the responsibility of the
prospective student athlete to make sure the Eligibility Center has the documents it needs to certify
his/her eligibility. New requirements for 2016 graduates are outlined here.
