NCAA WORKSHOP For The College Bound Student Athlete
What is the NCAA Eligibility Center? The NCAA Clearinghouse is now the NCAA Eligibility Center. The E Center certifies the academic and amateur credentials of all students who want to play Division I or II sports. Students must meet academic benchmarks and be certified as an amateur.
Eligibility Center / College Admission Eligibility Center certification is not admission to college. You must apply to college separately and be accepted. * Eligibility Center clears you to play at a Division I or II school but does not ensure that you will get in that school.
