A prospective student-athlete who is looking to play at the Division I or Division II level should register online with the NCAA Eligibility Center
in his or her fifth form (junior) year or at the beginning of their sixth form (senior) year. There are specific academic requirements and minimum standardized test scores that students must meet in order to be eligible to participate in the NCAA at the Division I and II levels.
Division III schools do not offer athletics scholarships, therefore student-athletes aspiring to play at the Division III level do not need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Each Division III school sets its own admission and eligibility standards.
