NCAA Eligibility

 
College-bound student athletes hoping to enter NCAA Division 1 or Division 2 colleges and universities must meet academic rules in order to get scholarships, practice or compete during their first year.
 

The NCAA Eligibility Center has tons of helpful resources to guide students and parents in the planning/preparing process including: 

  • A FREE online course for student-athletes that we strongly encourage prospective students and parents to take. Click HERE to access this amazing resource. 
  • A Membership Schools Map tool for locating schools that offer your preferred sport and each division across the US.

 

Please review MHHS's list of Approved NCAA Courses.
