Refer to the NCAA Academic Eligibility section to determine the initial-eligibility standards that apply to you. If you don't register you will not be eligible to play or practice during your freshman year. Athletes who want to compete at College level must file a form with the NCAA Clearinghouse.

NAIA Eligibility Center
