      Today’s Objective
To educate you on NCAA bylaw’s
regarding initial eligibility.
Remind each representative to make
sure their school has updated the
core course list with the NCAA
clearinghouse.
Help with any clearinghouse
problems your students have now or
in the future.
           Division II Initial Eligibility
                 Requirements
•   - Graduate from high school
•   - Complete these 14 core courses:
    - 3 years of English
    - 2 years of math (algebra 1 or higher)
    - 2 years of natural or physical science (including one year of lab
        science if offered by your high school)
    - 2 extra years of English, math or natural or physical science
    - 2 years of social science
    - 3 years of extra core courses (from any category above, or
      foreign language, non-doctrinal religion or philosophy);
    - Earn a 2.000 grade-point average or better IN THE CORE
       COURSES
    - Earn a combined SAT score of 820 or an ACT sum score of
      68.
      There is no sliding scale in Division II.
Note: Computer science courses can
be used as core courses only
if your high school grants graduation
credit in math or natural or physical
science for them, and if the courses
appear on your high school's core-
course list as math or science
courses.
Qualifier, Partial Qualifier, Non-
            Qualifier.
You will be a qualifier
if you meet the academic requirements
listed above.
As a qualifier, you can practice or compete
for your college or university during your
first year of college;
Can receive an athletics scholarship during
your first year of college; and
Can play four seasons in your sport if you
maintain your eligibility from year to year.
You will be a partial qualifier if you do not
meet all of the academic requirements listed
above, but
You have graduated from high school and meet
one of the following:
The combined SAT score of 820 or ACT sum score
of 68; or
Completion of the 14 core courses with a 2.000
core-course grade-point average.
As a partial qualifier, you: Can practice with your
team at its home facility during your first year of
college;
Can receive an athletics scholarship during your
first year of college;
Cannot compete during your first year of college;
and
Can play four seasons in your sport if you
maintain your eligibility from year to year.
You will be a non-qualifier
if you did not graduate from high school, or, if
you graduated and are missing both the core-
course grade-point average or minimum number
of core courses and
The required ACT or SAT scores. As a non-
qualifier, you:
Cannot practice or compete for your college or
university during your first year of college;
Cannot receive an athletics scholarship during
your first year of college, although you may
receive need-based financial aid; and
Can play four seasons in your sport if you
maintain your eligibility from year to year.
10 Semester/4 Season Rule
In Division II Athletes are give 10 full
time semesters, (12 or more
hours/semester is full time, less than
12 is part time and does not count
towards the overall 10), to complete
4 seasons of competition.
This allows Partial Qualifiers/Non-
Qualifiers to compete in their four
seasons.
Taking Tests More than Once
You may take the SAT or the ACT more than one time. If
you take either test more than once, you may use your
best sub-score from different tests to meet the minimum
test-score requirements.

Here is an example:
             English Math Reading  Science Total Score
ACT (10/07) 15*       15    17        20*      67
SAT (12/07) 14        16*   18*       19       67
Scores used 15        16    18        20       69
The writing component of the ACT or SAT will not be
used to determine your qualifier status.
   IMPORTANT CHANGE

All SAT and ACT test scores must be
reported to the clearinghouse, directly
from the testing agency.
Test scores will not be accepted if
reported on a high school transcript.
When registering for the SAT or ACT, input
the clearinghouse code of 9999 to make
sure the score is reported directly to the
clearinghouse.
      Proof Of Graduation
On the student’s final transcript it must
have proof of graduation.
The clearinghouse will only accept
transcripts from the issuing high school.
Transcripts can be sent prior to the senior,
but a final one must be sent after
graduation.
Also, if the student attended more than
one high school, each school will be
required to send an official transcript to
the clearinghouse.
          Amateurism
The NCAA Clearinghouse also
requires those that have never been
associated with the NCAA before,
(e.g. incoming freshmen, 2-
year/NAIA transfers), to clear the
amateurism portion.
To clear the amateurism portion is
simply a matter of answering a
series of questions online.
 To register or not to register
If there is any possibility, now or in
the future, that a student-athlete
may attend an NCAA university they
should register at their earliest
convenience.
We have numerous 2-year/NAIA
transfers that get “jammed” up
because they never registered prior
to transferring to us.
    National Letter of Intent
              NLI
Only NCAA schools are member of
the NLI program.
NAIA/Junior colleges have
commitment letters that are not
binding with the NCAA
NLI’s are not binding with
NAIA/Juco’s.
What your students need to know
If they sign an NLI with the NCAA
they CAN still go to an NAIA/Juco
and visa versa.
If they an NLI they must honor the
rules of that NLI with regards to
other NCAA schools.
They must let other NCAA schools
know that they have signed as they
are under a recruiting ban.
