Totino-GraceA Catholic High School in the Lasallian Tradition
In order to play Division I or Division II college athletics, high school students must meet first-year eligibility requirements. The NCAA Eligibility Center is the organization that determines if a student meets the eligibility criteria. Students are deemed eligible if they meet the standards set forth in the following areas: high school academic record (approved courses and GPA), ACT/SAT scores, and any key information about amateur participation. Students who wish to participate in Division I or II athletics should prepare to meet eligibility requirements as they begin high school, and should register online at the NCAA Eligibility Center during sophomore year of high school.
A brief summary of eligibility requirements is listed below as well as helpful links.
