This website was designed by the NCAA to help high school student-athletes successfully transition to college. It includes general information about Division I, II and III and provides a broad look at the initial eligibility process.

What is the NCAA Eligibility Center? The Eligibility Center reviews prospective student-athletes to ensure they meet certain academic and amateurism standards. All student-athletes intending to play NCAA Division I or II sports need to register with the Eligibility Center. Students should register in sophomore or junior year. Student-athletes planning to participate in NCAA Division III or club/intramural sports do not need to register.
