NCAA Scholarship Information Breakdown

Academics and NCAA Eligibility

The NCAA Eligibility Center tells you the academic requirements that high school athletes need to maintain in order to be eligible to participate in college athletics. Itís essential to know the rules of eligibility to ensure that youíre taking the right classes as you prepare for your college athletic career. 

The classroom is as important as working on your skills on the field, court, weight room or track. Work in the classroom doesnít end once youíve been cleared by the NCAA Eligibility Center and accepted into college. Student-athletes must maintain certain academic requirements while attending college to remain eligible.
