Two new course categories will be added to help identify courses that required submission of additional information to complete their review.
1. Additional Information Required
Upon submission of a course title for review, if the high school review staff is unable to render a decision using existing resources on file (e.g., course catalogs, database notes, agreements with state agencies, etc.), the high school's account will be tasked for additional information in the high school portal. The course title will appear in the new Additional Information Required category until the appropriate documents have been submitted.
Once the high school review staff has reviewed the additional information, a final decision will be rendered and the course will be moved to the appropriate category (Approved, Denied, etc.). Previously, such courses were placed in the Denied category with a Reason Code of RC8 with no prompt for additional information.
2. Pending Individual Review
The high school review staff may also designate a course to the new Pending Individual Review category if it requires review of student-specific documents upon course completion (individual review). This step may be required if:
- The high school has an Account Status of "extended evaluation," or
- A core course is individualized on a student-by-student basis
To determine whether a course is eligible for individual review, the high school review staff must first determine whether a course's instructional design (e.g., curriculum, assessments, instruction) meets NCAA requirements.
Schools with courses that may require individual review will be notified in a separate letter regarding next steps for review of their courses.
