It is graduation time! Before you finish the school year, you will begin receiving task emails for both junior and senior student-athletes who are registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center. You will need to submit either a six-semester or final official transcript for those student-athletes. Please note that by agreeing to the NCAA Eligibility Center's Terms and Conditions, all registered students have agreed to the release of official transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center.

The easiest way to send us official transcripts is by uploading them directly through the High School Portal. Direct uploads are quick, free and provide almost immediate access to a student-athlete's transcripts. Learn more about directly uploading transcripts here. The NCAA Eligibility Center also accepts official electronic transcripts from a list of approved providers. Click here for more details on transcript submission, including how to check the status of a transcript submission.

In order for a student's academic certification to be processed, the student must have ACT or SAT scores submitted to the NCAA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency. Click here for step-by-step instructions on how they can request to have their test scores sent.

Test scores on a high school transcript will not be used. Students may take the ACT or the SAT an unlimited number of times prior to full-time collegiate enrollment, and the best score will be used in the final academic certification. Test scores are matched to the student's NCAA Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.

Note: If a student took the SAT before March 2016 and then takes the redesigned SAT, the NCAA Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the current and redesigned SAT when determining a student's initial eligibility. The NCAA Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the redesigned SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the old SAT, a numerical score on the old test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.A concordance chart will be provided from the College Board in May 2016. 

The end of the school year is a great time to update your List of NCAA Courses. A list that has not been updated recently could delay your graduating seniors' academic certification or prevent them from meeting the requirements.

You may add courses, archive those no longer taught and change titles quickly and easily on the High School Portal. Click here for additional information on updating your course list and a step-by-step tutorial.

If your list is accurate, please log in to the High School Portal to verify you have no updates; this will refresh your account in our system.

A new resource has been created for home school students and parents. This toolkit combines all of the home school resources into one location with additional information for home school students and parents. Click here to view this new toolkit
