High school student-athletes who wish to compete in college sports must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center at the beginning of their junior year. There is a fee associated with this process, and more information is available from the NCAA Eligibility Center. Please read the current Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete.
Although it is the student athlete's responsibility to register with the NCAA Clearinghouse, please feel free to ask the athletic director or school counselor if you need help with this process.
