NCAA ELIGIBILITY CENTER (notes from NCAA below)

  • Certification Account: A student-athlete must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school. A student also must be registered with a Certification Account before they can make official visits to a school or sign a National Letter of Intent in Division I or II. The registration fee is $80 for domestic students and $135 for international students. Registration typically takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes.

  • Profile Page : If a student-athlete is currently unsure which division they want to compete in or plan to compete at a Division III school, they should create a Profile Page. Creating a Profile Page is free and easy. Students should expect 15 to 30 minutes to complete a Profile Page. If at any time the student wishes to play at the Division I or II level, they can transition to a Certification Account and pay the registration fee to begin the certification process.
