Are You A College-Bound Student-Athlete?

If you are a middle school or high-school student and interested in pursuing athletics in college, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the college-bound student-athlete eligibility rules of the major collegiate sport governing bodies.

National College Athletic Association (NCAA). The only one who can certify your eligibility for NCAA sports is through the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse.  Student-athletes must follow the NCAA regulations that are updated regularly on the website www.ncaa.org or www.ncaaclearinghouse.net.  See NCAA Guide for College-Bound Student-Athlete for more information. There are new requirements for college-bound student-athletes enrolling full time at an NCAA Division I college or university on or after August 1, 2016. See New NCAA Division I Initial-Eligibility Academic Requirements.
 
National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). The NAIA Eligibility Center is responsible for determining the NAIA eligibility of first-time student-athletes.  Any student playing NAIA championship sports for the first time must meet the eligibility requirements. Students must have their eligibility determined by the NAIA Eligibility Center, and all NAIA schools are bound by the center's decisions.  The NAIA Official Handbook outlines all association rules governing eligibility and for update on regulations check out their website www.naia.org.  See NAIA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete for more information.
 
National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) See National Junior College Athletic Association for information regarding NJCAA junior college level sports.
