What is the NCAA Eligibility Center?
It declares your eligibility to compete at the NCAA Division 1 or 2 level. You will need to be registered in order to make any official visits to D1 or D2 colleges or to sign your National Letter of Intent. There is a small fee to register, however, you can apply for a fee waiver if you need it. Registration Link - click here and follow the instructions. Registration is not required if you are attending a Division 3 college or university. It is strongly recommended to register in case D1 or D2 opportunities present themselves.

If you think you can play DI or DII college athletics, register for the Eligibility Center. It’s not a bad idea to do it regardless in case you received DI or DII interest.
What is the NAIA Eligibility Center?
The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) is another set of 4-year institutions that offer academic and athletic money. Like the NCAA, the NAIA Eligibility Center determines eligibility for first time students. There is a small fee to register, however, you can apply for a fee waiver.
