When you created your NCAA Eligibility Center account, you told us you attended secondary school in Canada. 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:
- For non-Quebec Canadian students, ask your provincial ministry of education to mail official copies of your transcripts for years 9 and up. In some provinces, year 9 occurs in middle school and a separate 9th grade transcript may be mailed by that school directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
- For Quebec students, ask your secondary school to mail an official copy of your school-issued Secondary 3 report card. Furthermore, please have your ministry of education mail official copies of your Relevé de Note (which should include Secondary IV and V results), as well as the Diplôme d'Études Secondaires/DES. If you plan to attend a CEGEP program, a CEGEP-issued transcript must also be mailed by the school.
- Each Canadian province has a list of approved NCAA core courses which has been developed in conjunction with the provincial ministry of education. Individual secondary schools (public and private) do not need to be reviewed. You may review the list of approved courses and province-specific information on the Eligibility Center website.
- If your documents are issued in a language other than English, please mail certified line-by-line English translations of these documents.
- 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. 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.
