Juniors

  • Ask your guidance counselor to send an official transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center after your junior year.
  • Review your transcript with your counselor to see what core classes must be completed your senior year.

 

Seniors

  • Visit the “My Planner” page in your NCAA Eligibility Center account and complete any open tasks (e.g. sending final transcripts, sending test scores, requesting amateurism, etc.).
    • Monitor your email for communications from the NCAA Eligibility Center.
  • Request your amateurism certification on or after April 1st of your senior year.
  • After graduation, ask your guidance counselor to send your final transcript with proof of graduation to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
