NCAA Clearinghouse (Eligibility Center)
Instructions to Register for the NCAA Clearinghouse (Now Called the NCAA Eligibility Center)
The NCAA Clearinghouse is an essential step in becoming eligible to play college sports. Over 180,000 potential college athletes register with the NCAA every year.
If you want to play NCAA college sports and receive a scholarship at the DI or DII level, you will need to register and be cleared by the NCAA. The Eligibility Center is the organization within the NCAA that determines the academic eligibility and amateur status for all NCAA DI and DII athletes.
The First Step in Registering for the NCAA Eligibility Center is to Create Your Account
All athletes will eventually create an account. It is best to create your account by the start of your junior year in high school to avoid getting caught in the backlog of athletes trying to get cleared at the end of the year. Once your account is created you will have several more steps to submit your transcripts, test scores, and answer your amateur status questionnaire before you are finished.
Once You Have Created Your Account Check Your Email and Log in to Finish the Registration Process

*Please note, you cannot send transcripts or test scores on your own. They need to be sent by your high school and testing center.
Once the NCAA has your complete academic records and test scores, they will not review your information unless it has been requested by an NCAA University. If you have registered with the NCAA and have not had your eligibility status completed, chances are it has not been requested by a coach.
