• NCAA GUIDELINES

    To be successful in college, students need to be prepared for college coursework. In Division I and Division II, the NCAA sets academic initial-eligibility standards that take into account GPA, standardized test scores, core courses taken in high school and the grades earned in those core courses. Division III schools hold student-athletes to the same overall standards for the institution in which they’re enrolling.

    All student-athletes also must meet the unique acceptance requirements of the college or university they plan to attend (which may exceed NCAA standards).

     

    STUDENT RESPONSIBILITES

    • All student-athletes also must meet the unique acceptance requirements of the college or university they plan to attend (which may exceed NCAA standards).

    • All student athletes must be certified by a central clearinghouse to establish their eligibility for Divisions I and II schools. Students are required to register for the Clearinghouse on line at eligibilitycenter.org.

    • Since the rules and regulations governing prospective student athletes are subject to change by the NCAA, students and parents are encouraged to check for the latest information on line at NCAA.org.

    • A detailed listing of the academic courses offered at Massapequa High School which meet the NCAA requirements for core courses are available for review in the guidance office or online at eligibilitycenter.org.

    • All students are responsible for meeting with their guidance counselor to ensure that they are enrolled in only academic courses which meet the NCAA requirements for core courses.
