Students who are planning on participating in Division I or II athletics in college need to register and be certified with the NCAA Eligibility Center. It is recommended to complete the registration process as early as sophomore year. An account must be created to make official visits to Division I and II schools and to sign a National Letter of Intent. Once you create an account, NCAA will guide you through the rest of the process.
A high school transcript must be received by NCAA as part of the requirements. Students can request a transcript to be sent in Parchment.
The Eligibility Center also needs to receive your ACT and/or SAT scores sent directly from the testing agency in which you would request. All test scores are required to be sent and NCAA does superscore. It is best for students to list the NCAA Eligibility Center as a score recipient at the time of exam registration to avoid additional fees to send later.
If you plan to compete at a Division III school or are currently unsure in which division you want to compete, create a Profile Page. If at any time you wish to pursue a Division I or II path, you will be able to transition to a Certification Account. It is also recommended to contact the college(s) you wish to attend for their own eligibility requirements.
For more information about participating in athletics in college, please contact one of our DHS Athletic Administrators, Gayle Luehr or Nate Flannery.
