PLAYER PLANNING TIMELINE:

FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES:

  • Start planning NOW!
  • Work hard to get the best grades possible.
  • Take classes that match your high school's NCAA List of Approved Core Courses. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only use approved core courses to certify your initial eligibility.

JUNIORS:

  • At the beginning of your junior year, log on to the Eligibility Center Web site at www.eligibilitycenter.org and register.

  • Request that your high school guidance counselor send an official transcript to the Eligibility Center after completing your junior year.  (The Eligibility Center does NOT accept faxed transcripts.)
  • Prior to registration for your senior year, check with your guidance counselor and the Eligibility Center to determine the number of core courses that need to be completed your senior year.

SENIORS:

  • You may take the SAT and/or ACT as often as you feel necessary. The Eligibility Center will use the best scores from each section of the SAT or ACT to determine your best cumulative score.
