Do You Want to Play College Sports? You Need More Than Just a High School Diploma!
Understand the Rules Behind the NCAA Clearinghouse
Do you have a dream of becoming a collegiate athlete after you graduate from High School? If you do, there is more to it than simply graduating with a high school diploma. The NCAA has strict rules about the academic qualifications of the athletes that want to play in Division I or Division II schools. The first thing that you need to do, is to create a login with the NCAA Eligibility Center at eligibilitycenter.org. In order to meet the criteria necessary you must do the following:
1. Receive a High School Diploma
2. Complete 16 NCAA approved Core Courses with a minimum 2.3 GPA for Division I and a 2.2 GPA for Division II
3. Earn a minimum GPA
4. Earn an ACT or SAT that matches your core-course GPA.
