• ncaa All students whose future plans include enrolling in college and participating in Division I or Division II athletics must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain the most recent evaluation of Council Rock’s approved course list from his/her counselor or the NCAA Eligibility Center website. Please also note: a (+) after a course title in our Program Planning Guide indicates a course is approved for NCAA eligibility. Course modifications and new courses are submitted to the NCAA each year. Therefore, it is very important to check yearly for any changes in course approvals and eligibility requirements. Although a student can register with the NCAA Eligibility Center at any time during his/her high school career, one must register by fall of his/her senior year. Students should submit an official transcript request form to have an official transcript sent during the fall of Senior year.

    Students who initially enroll full time during the 2021-22 academic year and intend to play NCAA Division I or II athletics will not be required to take a standardized test to meet NCAA initial-eligibility requirements.

     

    If this process is not followed, the student will not be permitted to participate in college athletics during the freshman year.

     

    IMPORTANT NOTE:

    Any credits taken outside of Council Rock School District for either remediation or original credit may not be approved by the NCAA. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the educational institution to verify whether the course falls under the approved course list for NCAA. It is also the student’s responsibility to obtain a transcript from the educational institution indicating the course, grade and credit to include in his/her application for NCAA eligibility.
