NCAA Eligibility

NCAA Eligibility

NCAA schools require college-bound student-athletes to build a foundation of high school courses to prepare them for college coursework. Students who plan to compete in NCAA sports at Division I or II schools must pass a certain number of NCAA core courses.

What are core courses?

For a high school class to be used in the initial-eligibility process as an NCAA-approved core course, it must meet these conditions:

Be an academic, four-year college preparatory course receiving high school graduation credit in one or more of these areas:
English
Math (Algebra I or higher)
Natural/physical science
Social science
Foreign language
Comparative religion or philosophy
Be at or above your high school’s regular academic level
Be taught by a qualified instructor
 
Not all high school classes are NCAA core courses. Some examples of courses that are not NCAA core courses include:
     Courses in non-core areas, fine arts or vocations such as driver education, typing, art, music, physical education or welding.
     Courses that prepare students for the world of work or life, or for a two-year college or technical school, such as personal finance, consumer education or tech prep.
     Courses taught below grade level, at a slower pace or with less rigor or depth, such as basic, essential, fundamental or foundational courses.
     Courses which are not academic in nature such as film appreciation, video editing or greenhouse management.
