When you created your NCAA Eligibility Center account, you told us you attended school in New Zealand. We are writing to assure you that we are familiar with your education system and to help you understand the information we need to complete your certification.
We need official academic documents to establish your graduation timeline and to evaluate your academic performance according to NCAA initial eligibility standards. Here are a few recommendations to get you started if you have not already submitted these documents:
- Ask your school to mail official school-stamped copies of your transcripts for years 9 and up. Please make sure that your transcripts identify a final grade per course per term and a grading scale.
- Ask the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) to mail official copies of your NCEA Certificate with the Record of Achievement (ROA) showing your highest level completed. Proof of graduation occurs when you achieve NCEA Level 2 or NCEA Level 3 and which is declared in the “Qualification and Achievement Summary’ section. Official copies should be mailed once the results for each level that you achieve are published, including Level 1.
- Take the ACT or SAT before your first full-time collegiate enrollment and ask the ACT or SAT to send your scores to the NCAA Eligibility Center using code 9999.
- If you are transferring to an NCAA school from another college, ask the athletics compliance office at your new school if they require test score submission.
- Learn more about NCAA test scores.
Please mail your documents as soon as they are available if you have not done so already. Remember to monitor your task list at eligibilitycenter.org
throughout your certification process. Timely submission of requested documents will prevent delays in your certification.
We look forward to assisting you as you work towards becoming an NCAA student-athlete.
