What are the NCAA academic requirements?

The NCAA Eligibility Center requires that high school athletes meet minimum qualifications if they want to compete for an NCAA program.

Here are the requirements for a Division I school:
~Graduate from high school
~Complete these 16 core courses
~Earn a minimum required grade-point average in your core courses
~Earn a combined SAT or ACT sum score that matches your core-course grade-point average and test score sliding scale (for example, a 2.400 core-course grade-point average needs an 860 SAT).

There are different requirements for Division II schools, so make sure to visit or to make sure you meet the academic requirements for those colleges and universities.

Are you ready for the NEXT STEP!
