NCAA Eligibility Center News Letter

It is time for college-bound student-athletes to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center.

Who Should Register?  Any current high school sophomore, junior or senior who wishes to participate in collegiate athletics at an NCAA Division I or II college or university should register.
 
How Does Registration Work?  Registrants may access the site at www.eligibilitycenter.org .  From the home page, click on “Enter Here” for NCAA college-bound student-athletes, then on the “New Account” link in the upper right corner.  From there, they simply follow the prompts.
 
What is the High School’s Role?  For your current seniors who have registered, you need to send transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center.  You can access your list of registrants on the NCAA Eligibility Center’s High School Portal.  Go to www.eligibilitycenter.org and click on the high school administrator link.  Log in, then click on “Student Reports ” to see what students from your school have registered.  You will want to send transcripts at the end of the year for both juniors and seniors.  Please consider sending an e-transcript rather than a paper transcript, as these are received and processed within 24-48 hours.  Directions and information on e-transcripts are on the Resources tab of the High School Portal.
TRANSCRIPT UPLOAD FEATURE Angle
High schools now have the capability to upload transcripts directly to a student’s account from the High School Portal. It’s free and easy! As with other electronic transcript providers, this process is much quicker than using the U.S. Postal Service or any overnight delivery method. When transcripts are uploaded directly to a student’s account, the NCAA Eligibility Center has near real time access to the transcript! For instructions on how to use this new process, follow the tutorial here.
PRELIMINARY TRANSCRIPT SUBMISSION Angle
The NCAA Eligibility Center needs your help! Our staff is conducting preliminary academic evaluations on 2015 graduates much earlier than years past, but the NCAA Eligibility Center cannot complete evaluations without transcripts.
Why the change?  NCAA colleges and universities have asked for earlier academic evaluations of college-bound student-athletes whom they are actively recruiting.  These earlier evaluations will assist the NCAA Eligibility Center in identifying potential issues with individual cases, and drive outbound, proactive efforts to address concerns throughout the academic year, rather than last-minute emergencies during the summer months.
What do we need from you?  As you know, the NCAA Eligibility Center cannot do the preliminary evaluations without the required transcripts and test scores.  We need your assistance in submitting information for your college-bound student-athletes.
  1. Please submit official six-semester transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center.These transcripts can be sent via U.S. mail, or the preferred method is through one of the approved e-transcript providers. The U.S. mail and overnight delivery addresses are below.  Sending transcripts through the mail may take additional processing time. However, e-transcripts are processed within 24-48 hours of receipt.Those providers include:
  2. The NCAA Eligibility Center also asks that you remind your student-athletes to have their SAT and/or ACT scores sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center by entering the code ‘9999’ on the test registration form.  All test scores must be sent directly from the testing agency, as test scores reported on the high school transcript will not be accepted.
Assisting the NCAA Eligibility Center in these efforts will aid in providing a clearer snapshot of where your student-athletes stand after six academic semesters.  Thank you in advance for your assistance in helping the NCAA Eligibility Center implement this new service model!

TEST SCORES Angle
In order for college-bound student-athletes academic certification to be processed, they must have test scores submitted to the NCAA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency.  Click  here for step-by-step instructions on how they can have their test scores sent.
Test scores on a high school transcript will not be used. Students may take the ACT or the SAT an unlimited number of times prior to full-time collegiate enrollment, and the best score will be used in the final academic certification.  Test scores are matched to the student’s NCAA Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.
It is important to note that if the NCAA Eligibility Center does not receive a student’s test scores, the student’s account will not be evaluated, which means that the student may not be able to receive athletics scholarships.
