Center: Registration Process
Student-athletes must register with the NCAA
Eligibility Center to be eligible to play NCAA
Division I or II sports in college. Athletes
playing in Division III do not have to register.
What is the NCAA Eligibility Center?
The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic credentials of
college-bound student-athletes who aspire to
compete in intercollegiate sports at the Division
I or II level. The Eligibility Center uses
only approved core courses and considers a
combination of core-course GPA and test scores to
certify initial eligibility.
Student-athletes who plan to compete at a Division
III school may create a “Profile Page” and then
later transition to a “Certification Account” if
they decide to pursue a Division I or II path.
