NCAA Eligibility Center (Formerly Known as the Clearninghouse)
Required for all Division 1 and Division 2 Athletes
The NCAA Clearinghouse has recently changed their policy regarding the receipt of test scores. All SAT and ACT scores must be reported directly to the NCAA Initial Eligibility Center by the testing agency. Test scores that appear on the transcript will no longer be accepted. Use the NCAA Eligibility Center code 9999 when you request scores to be sent from SAT or ACT. Those students who applied earlier in the year should be getting a letter from the NCAA stating that you need to have your scores sent from the testing agencies. Any questions please see Mr. Jaskoski.
