College Bound Athletes

The Division I and Division II quick reference sheets have been updated to include the redesigned SAT concordance inthe sliding scale. As you assist students and families, use these documents to help them better understand the required academic standards their student must meet. The “Division I Academic Requirements” and “Division II Academic Requirements” documents are both found on our Want to Play College Sports webpage under "Initial-Eligibility Toolkit," and on the High School Portal’s Resources Page under “Important New Rules.” Please feel free to download them (below) and share with your student-athletes who are bound for college and their families.

Student-Athlete Profile Account

When the NCAA Eligibility Center redesigned its registration website at www.eligibilitycenter.org , one of the most significant enhancements was the creation of the profile account. The profile account gives college-bound student-athletes the opportunity to make the best decision about their college choices earlier in their high school careers. Students may now choose from the traditional certification account for those wanting to attend and compete at Division I and II schools, or a free profile account for those attending Division III schools and students who are not yet sure at what school they want to attend and compete.

Registration for a profile account is free and easy. Students should expect 10 to 20 minutes to complete a profile account. Also, if a student with a profile account decides to compete at the Division I or II level, they can easily transition their profile account to a certification account. (A registration fee of $80 (domestic/Canada) or $135 (international) is required to begin the certification process.) Please encourage your freshmen student-athletes to register for a free profile account.
