Eligibility Requirements For NCAA Athletic Scholarships


 

Many high school athletes wish to be able to continue to play their sports once they go to college. A number of them also wish to get scholarships based on their athletic ability in order to help them pay for college. This means they need to meet the eligibility requirements for NCAA Athletic Scholarships and participation.

Not just anyone who is good at sports is eligible for NCAA athletic scholarships. First of all, they need to meet the amateurism requirements. After that they have to meet the educational and testing requirements. These include taking a certain number of courses in high school that count under the NCAA core courses. For those in Division I, this is 16 courses, and for those wishing to compete in Division II this is 14 courses, although this is going to change in 2013 to be the same 16 courses required in Division I. They also need to have a minimum GPA and a minimum admissions test score in order to qualify.

There are only so many NCAA Athletic Scholarships that a university is allowed to give out each year, and a certain percentage of students that are awarded these scholarships must graduate. If schools do not follow these rules, they will not be allowed to compete within the NCAA division league.

There are a number of different sports that scholarships can be given for, as long as the school is in Division I or Division II. Division III schools are not allowed to give out athletic scholarships, so if you wish to get this type of scholarship you won't be able to attend these schools.

Those interested in finding out more about the NCAA Athletic Scholarship eligibility requirements and registering with the NCAA can go to the NCAA website in order to do so. There are lists of the sliding scales for the grade point averages and test scores you need to receive, as well as lists of the courses that can count towards the requirements for core courses that athletes must have taken. There are also answers to frequently asked questions that might help out those who are not sure what they need to do in order to qualify.

By Jeanmarie Keller
Throughout the entire college process, colleges are trying to figure out whether or not a prospective student is a good fit for their campus. They are constantly asking interested students - at college fairs, informational sessions, on their websites, in the applications themselves, interviews, etc. But there is one question you almost always get - likely directly in a conversation - "What other colleges are you considering (or applying to)?"
