In Division I and Division II, the NCAA sets academic initial-eligibility standards that take into account GPA, standardized test scores, core courses taken in high school and the grades earned in those core courses. Division III schools hold student-athletes to the same overall standards for the institution in which they’re enrolling.
All student-athletes also must meet the unique acceptance requirements of the college or university they plan to attend (which may exceed NCAA standards). Students must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center to be considered for eligibility in any division.
Mrs. Jackson is the NCAA counselor for Campbell High School.
Those who are eligible for SAT/ACT fee waivers are also allowed to waive the NCAA Eligibility Center fee.
