NCAA Eligibility Information

The NCAA registration website was redesigned last fall. There are two different accounts to help prospective student-athletes make the best decision about their college choices. They are:

  • Certification Account: A student-athlete must be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school. A student also must be registered with a Certification Account before they can make official visits to a school or sign a National Letter of Intent in Division I or II. The registration fee is $80 for domestic students and $135 for international students. Registration typically takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes. 
  • Profile Page : If a student-athlete is currently unsure which division they want to compete in or plan to compete at a Division III school, they should create a Profile Page. Creating a Profile Page is free and easy. Students should expect 15 to 30 minutes to complete a Profile Page. If at any time the student wishes to play at the Division I or II level, they can transition to a Certification Account and pay the registration fee to begin the certification process. 

Student-athletes that want to play college sports are encouraged to complete their NCAA registration at Students can find more information and resources about registering on the How to Register page.
