2019 High School Survey

Your feedback is important to us! As a reminder, our High School Survey is open until April 30. Please take a few moments to complete the survey found here. We want to know more about your interactions with our staff and processes, as well as give you the opportunity to provide us with information on any difficult cases you had this year and what we can do to better assist you next time. 

Update Your School’s Core-Course List

With the school year winding down, now is a great time to review your school’s core-course list and make sure it is up-to-date for the 2019-20 school year. A list that has not been updated recently could delay your graduating seniors' academic certifications or prevent them from meeting the academic requirements.

You may add courses, archive those no longer taught and change titles quickly and easily on the High School Portal. Click here for additional information on updating your course list and a step-by-step tutorial.

If you believe your list is accurate, please log in to the High School Portal to verify you have no updates. This will refresh your account in our system and let our team know your core course list is correct.


Apply for the NCAA High School Advisory Group

We want your opinion!

The NCAA Eligibility Center is accepting applications for six high school administrators, counselors or athletic administrators to serve as members of the NCAA High School Advisory Group. Sound interesting? Here's more about the group and how to apply.

The purpose of the Advisory Group is to review new processes and procedures, as well as brainstorm and discuss ideas, opinions and feedback concerning ways the NCAA Eligibility Center can improve its service to the high school community. Over the past three years, the High School Advisory Group has helped implement the "Get the Word Out" Grant program, aided in launching the Eligibility Center's redesigned website, provided feedback to improve many of our resources for high schools and helped shape new processes through the High School Portal, such as uploading high school transcripts.

To apply, please submit a resume and 500-word statement describing why you would like to serve as a member of the High School Advisory Group to ec-clientrelations@ncaa.org. Entries must be submitted by Friday, April 26, 2019. Late submissions will not be considered.

Participation in the Advisory Group is a two-year commitment and will require you to participate in monthly teleconferences during the academic year.


Request Final Amateurism Certification

Students enrolling full time at an NCAA Division I or II college or university in Fall 2019 may now request their final amateurism certification. This is a requirement to compete their freshman year. 

To request final amateurism, students should log in to their Certification Account at eligibilitycenter.org and:
  • Review their added sports and answers to Sports Questions. 
  • Check their graduation and enrollment dates and update if necessary. 
  • Review any open tasks and complete necessary information.‚Äč
Remember, the enrollment date in the student's account should reflect the date they first plan to enroll in an NCAA Division I or II school.

Transcript Upload

With so much going on at the end of the year, it’s a great time to take advantage of our transcript upload process. You can log in to your school’s account in the High School Portal and directly upload transcripts to a student’s account - this includes uploading transcripts for former students. Direct uploads are quick, free and provide almost immediate access to a student-athlete's transcripts. Learn more about directly uploading transcripts here. The NCAA Eligibility Center also accepts official electronic transcripts from a list of approved providers. Click here for the list of approved providers.
