HIGH SCHOOL NEWSLETTER // FEBRUARY 2018

Free NCAA/NFHS Partnership Initial-Eligibility Online Course

The NCAA Eligibility Center, in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), has updated the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Course available through NFHSLearn.com. Counselors and coaches can visit NFHSLearn.com  and complete the FREE initial-eligibility course. This interactive course familiarizes viewers with Division I and II academic requirements, as well as the Eligibility Center’s registration and certification processes required for college-bound student-athletes. It’s a great tool for you and your colleagues. Please pass it on!

Test Score Submission

For a student's academic certification to be processed, the student must have ACT or SAT scores submitted to the Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency. Test scores on a high school transcript will not be used. Students may take the ACT or the SAT an unlimited number of times prior to full-time collegiate enrollment, and the best score will be used in the final academic certification. Test scores are matched to the student's Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.

Note: If a student took the SAT prior to or during March 2016 and then takes the current (redesigned SAT), the Eligibility Center will not combine section scores from the pre-March 2016 version and the current (redesigned) SAT when determining a student's initial eligibility. The Eligibility Center will only combine section scores from the same version of the test. Because the current SAT varies in design and measures different academic concepts than the previous SAT version (March 2016 and earlier), a numerical score on the current test may not be equivalent to the same numerical score on the redesigned test.

Please refer to the Division I Quick Reference Sheet or the Division II Quick Reference Sheet to help your students determine the core-course grade point average needed that meets their SAT or ACT sum score. 

High School Transcript Upload

To date, over 18,000 high schools have used the transcript upload feature available through the High School Portal to send more than 897,000 transcripts to the Eligibility Center.

We encourage you to continue using the upload feature for all preliminary and final transcripts for your students, as it significantly reduces processing time for student accounts. As a reminder, only transcripts in a PDF file format may be uploaded through the High School Portal. Any other document types will not be reviewed and could potentially hold up a student's evaluation. Also, when students register with the Eligibility Center, the student must accept the terms and conditions, which provides broad permission for all schools to share official high school transcripts and academic records with the Eligibility Center.
