Welcome back to a new school year! The NCAA Eligibility Center staff understands what an exciting and hectic time this is and appreciates all you do for your students and parents.

In an effort to continue outreach and education efforts aimed at assisting student-athletes and families on their path to academic and athletic success, the NCAA Eligibility Center is continuing the NCAA "Get the Word Out" grant program. For more information, and to apply for the grant, click here.

The six-semester (or preliminary) transcript task will be assigned to high schools requesting transcripts for all registered students who have completed their junior year (six semesters).

Please note that this is a courtesy to notify your high school that it is time to send a transcript for an NCAA Eligibility Center registrant who currently attends (or previously attended) your school. Your school will be assigned transcript tasks throughout the year when it is time to send transcripts for those students already registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center that have attended your school or as newly registered students select your school as being attended. Your school will receive reminder task emails every 14 days until transcripts have been sent or uploaded for all of the students listed as a registrant for your school.

Note: By registering with the NCAA Eligibility Center and accepting the Terms and Conditions, the student provides broad permission for all schools to share official high school transcripts and academic records with the NCAA Eligibility Center.

Why is it important to send these preliminary transcripts? NCAA colleges and universities have asked for earlier academic evaluations of college-bound student-athletes whom they are actively recruiting. These earlier evaluations will assist the NCAA Eligibility Center in identifying potential issues with individual cases, and drive outbound, proactive efforts to address concerns throughout the academic year, rather than last-minute emergencies during the summer months.

The start of a new school year is a great time to update your school's 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.
