NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION (NCAA)

 

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sets certain standards for college freshmen who are planning to participate in athletics. The NCAA Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse must certify these students for eligibility. This process begins in the spring of the junior year. Students must complete a form obtained from the NCAA website (www.ncaaclearinghouse.net). NCAA calculates GPA on the core curriculum based on a maximum of a 4.0 GPA scale.
