Eligibility Information

Athletes going on to Division I and II colleges must have a 2.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) in a designated number of core courses and the required ACT or SAT score.

Athletes should take the ACT or the SAT by the spring of their junior year in order to have time to retake these tests if necessary. Athletes must also complete the NCAA Clearinghouse Form to initiate the eligibility process. This form should be completed after an athlete's junior year.

For information and advice on getting an athletic scholarship, athletes should talk to their coach.
