Brave Athletes and Parents,
The advantages of competing in college sports are both immediate and lifelong. Participating in college sports provides opportunities to learn, compete and succeed. Student-athletes receive top-notch academic support, quality medical care, and regular access to outstanding coaching, facilities, and equipment. Student-athletes as a group graduate at higher rates than their peers in the general student body and feel better prepared for life after college.
College-bound student-athletes preparing to enroll in a Division I or Division II school need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center/NCAA Clearinghouse to ensure they have met amateurism standards and are academically prepared for college coursework.
What is the NCAA Clearinghouse?
The NCAA Clearinghouse is an essential step in becoming eligible to play college sports. Over 180,000 potential college athletes register with the NCAA every year.
If you want to play NCAA college sports and receive a scholarship at the DI or DII level, you will need to register and be cleared by the NCAA. The Eligibility Center is the organization within the NCAA that determines the academic eligibility and amateur status for all NCAA DI and DII athletes.
The First Step in Registering for the NCAA Eligibility Center is to Create Your Account
How do I register with the NCAA Clearinghouse?
All athletes will eventually create an account. It is best to create your account by the start of your junior year in high school to avoid getting caught it the backlog of athletes trying to get cleared at the end of the year. Once your account is created you will have several more steps to submit your transcripts, test scores, and answer your amateur status questionnaire before you are finished.
