What You Need to Know About the NCAA Eligibility Center


The NCAA Eligibility Center is an organization of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) that certifies the initial eligibility of all perspective student-athletes who want to compete as a freshman athlete at NCAA Division I and II colleges. It's important to know in advance when you should register for the NCAA Eligibility Center and the documents you need to have ready to submit. BeRecruited wants to make the process easier to navigate, so we've compiled a list of information you need to know.

Who needs to register? If you are wanting to play NCAA DI or DII sports.
When to register? You should register at the beginning of your junior year. For some sports you may want to register earlier to show coaches your interest in playing college sports at this level.
Is there a fee? There's a $70 fee to register for US, US Terriorites and Canadian students and $120 for all other international students. The fee is nonrefundable.
What information do I need to submit? At the end of your junior year, a transcript, including six semesters of grades, should be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center from your high school. Additional students should have their SAT or ACT scores forwarded directly to NCAA Eligibility Center (by using code "9999") whenever you take the exam/s.
