Academic Standards 

2.3 GPA, 16 Core Courses and 10/7


Are your student-athletes ready to compete? It takes more than talent on the field! The NCAA Eligibility Center calculates your athletes' core-course grade-point average based only on the grades they earn in NCAA-approved core courses.
Division I requires a minimum 2.3 GPA.
Division II requires a minimum 2.2 GPA.


Do your student-athletes know the requirements to be eligible to compete? For Divisions I and II, your student-athletes must complete a total of 16 NCAA-approved core courses to be eligible to play their sport at the collegiate level. Divisions I and II have different core-course requirements. Click here for a resource you can share with your students to help ensure they are on track with these core-course requirements. 


Is your student-athlete being recruited by a Division I school? To study and compete at a Division I school, your student-athletes must complete 10 of their 16 core courses (including seven in English, math or science) before the start of their seventh semester. (International student-athletes don't have this requirement.) Click here for Division II requirements. 


NFHS/NCAA Course on Initial Eligibility Released

The National Federation of High School State Associations (NFHS) partnered with the NCAA Eligibility Center to develop and produce an online initial-eligibility course designed to assist coaches and the high school community on helping their student-athletes and families with the NCAA registration and certification process, as well as the academic standards needed to study and participate at an NCAA Division I or II college. Our goal is to increase awareness with those that assist students and families in their dream of studying and competing in college sports. Be sure to forward this link to other coaches and athletic directors.
