ncaa-logo-1024x998

The NCAA has raised the bar academically. Initial full-time collegiate enrollment on or after August 1, 2016: o Sixteen (16) core courses are required (see chart below for subject-area requirements). Ten core courses completed before the seventh semester; seven of the 10 must be in English, math or natural/physical science. These courses/grades are “locked in” at start of the seventh semester (cannot be repeated for grade-point average [GPA] improvement to meet initial-eligibility requirements for competition). o Students who do not meet core-course progression requirements may still be eligible to receive athletics aid and practice in the initial year of enrollment by meeting academic redshirt requirements.

Only core courses that appear on the high school’s List of NCAA Courses on the NCAA Eligibility Center’s website (www.eligibilitycenter.org) will be used to calculate your core-course GPA. Use this list as a guide. Initial full-time collegiate enrollment before August 1, 2016: Students must present a corresponding test score (ACT sum score or SAT combined score) and core-course GPA (minimum 2.000) on Sliding Scale A . Core-course GPA is calculated using the best 16 core courses that meet subject-area requirements.  Initial full-time collegiate enrollment on or after August 1, 2016: o Students must present a corresponding test score (ACT sum score or SAT combined score) and core-course GPA (minimum 2.300) on Sliding Scale B (see Page No. 2). o Core-course GPA is calculated using the best 16 core courses that meet both progression (10 before seventh semester; seven in English, math or science; “locked in”) and subject-area requirements.
