In an effort to simplify and streamline the initial-eligibility certification process for prospective student-athletes, the NCAA has introduced online registration for the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse. We ask that all prospective student-athletes who wish to register with the clearinghouse do so online. The clearinghouse web site may be accessed through the Prospect/Parent custom home page on the NCAA web site at www.ncaa.org or may be accessed directly at www.ncaaclearinghouse.net. You may call NCAA membership services at 319-337-1492 if you have questions regarding this information.
The clearinghouse recommends that students-athletes start their initial-eligibility certification process at the beginning of their senior year. (This way, their grades and GPA are computed through the end of their junior year.)
