NCAA/NAIA Eligibility

NCAA stands for National Collegiate Athletic Association.  The NCAA Eligibility Center certifies the academic and amateur status of all prospective student-athletes who plan to compete in NCAA Division I (“DI”) or Division II (“DII”) athletics.  The Eligibility Center was created for this purpose and to ensure that all college-bound student-athletes, their parents, coaches and administrators, have access to the rules for participation.

You need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school. Create a Certification Account and the NCAA Eligibility Center will guide you through the process.

You need to create a Certification Account to make official visits to Divisions I and II schools or to sign a National Letter of Intent.


Create a free Profile Page if you plan to compete at a Division III school or are not yet sure where you want to compete.

You’ll get an NCAA ID, and the NCAA Eligibility Center will send you important reminders as you complete high school.
