• NCAA and NAIA Information
  • NCAA Division I Rules Changes (October 2011)
    • Minimum GPA Raised to 2.30: Beginning with the high school graduating class of 2015, the minimum core GPA for incoming college freshmen has been raised from 2.00 to 2.30. Student-athletes who graduate with a core GPA between 2.00 and 2.29 can still receive an athletic scholarship and practice with their teams, but cannot participate in game action as freshmen. A higher SAT/ACT sliding scale is expected to be released soon.
    • 10 Core Courses by Junior Year: Beginning with the graduating class of 2015, student-athletes will need to complete at least 10 of the 16 core course requirements by the end of their junior year
    • Multi-Year Scholarships: Division I schools now have the option to guarantee athletic scholarships for more than one year. The guarantee would protect student-athletes from the loss of a scholarship due to injury or performance. Colleges could still revoke guaranteed scholarships for poor academic performance or behavioral reasons.
    CoreCourseGPA.com software will be updated to reflect these changes and, as always, we will continue to keep you informed regarding the latest recruiting rules and academic standards.

  • NCAA Eligibility Center Policy on Pass/Fail
    • Lowest Course Grade (Pass/Fail): A student must pass a course in order for the Eligibility Center to use the course in a students evaluation; therefore, we will not use a course if the student receives an F in a course. In Pass/Fail grading situations, the Eligibility Center will assign the high schools lowest passing grade for a course that receives a Pass grade on the transcript. For most high schools, the lowest passing grade is a D, so the Eligibility Center generally assigns a D to a Pass grade.
