INFORMATION ON NCAA FOR ATHLETES
If you intend to participate in Division I or II athletics as a freshman, you must register and be certified by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse.
Registration instructions are available in the Counseling Office
Prospective student-athletes may register with the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse on-line. Simply go to the Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse website at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net/ncaa/NCAA/common/index.html. By registering on-line, prospects will be able to view their eligibility information on-line, and will not have to call the clearinghouse for eligibility updates. On-line registration saves time, and allows prospective student-athletes to view their eligibility status up to six weeks faster than through the paper registration process.
Once you have completed your on-line registration you should notify Ms. Wight in the Counseling Office so your transcript can be sent to NCAA. After you graduate from high school a final transcript will automatically be sent to the Clearinghouse to confirm that you have graduated.
