How to Assist Your Students
  • Grades 9-12
  • Guide students in their course selection to
  • Meet high-school graduation requirements.
  • Fully prepare students for a four-year college.
  • Meet NCAA core-course requirements.

19
How to Assist Your Students
  • Junior year
  • Take ACT or SAT test.
  • Report test scores to the clearinghouse.
  • Use code 9999 when registering.
  • That will automatically send scores to the
    clearinghouse.

20
How to Assist Your Students
  • Junior year
  • ACT or SAT test.
  • Report scores to the NCAA
    Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse.
  • After junior year
  • Register on line with the clearinghouse.
  • Counselor sends six-semester transcript to
    the clearinghouse.

21
Who Needs to Register with the Clearinghouse?
  • A student who plans to attend an NCAA Division I
    or II institution
  • and
  • who wishes to participate in intercollegiate
    athletics.

22
Your Role in the Clearinghouse Process
  • Assist students with the on-line registration
    procedure at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net
  • Send the students preliminary transcript (with
    at least six semesters represented) to the
    clearinghouse.

23
When Should Students Register?
  • Register on line at the conclusion of the
    junior year.
  • The clearinghouse will not process a
    transcript with fewer than six semesters
    represented.

24
When Does a Student Receive a Preliminary Report?
  • The clearinghouse prioritizes incoming
    information by the following categories
  • Students who are being actively recruited by an
    institution and are on an institutional request
    list
  • Students with disabilities who have taken a
    nonstandard test or who have registered with
    NCAA disability services
  • Students who request a report.

25
How to Assist Your Students
  • During the senior year
  • Continue to monitor course selection.
  • After the senior year
  • Counselor sends final transcript (with proof of
    graduation) to the clearinghouse.

26
Transcript Accuracy is Vital!!
  • Once the clearinghouse receives a final
    transcript, a revised transcript will not be
    used.
  • All transcript changes after graduation must be
    handled through the initial-eligibility waiver
    process.

27
Four Parts of Initial Eligibility
  • 1. Graduation from high school.
  • 2. Minimum core grade-point average.

29
Registering with NCAA Disability Services
  • No need to register unless
  • In Division I only, student needs to use courses
    taken after the eighth semester of high school
    and before initial full-time collegiate
    enrollment.
  • Includes summer school courses after senior year.

30
