Are you planning on playing a sport in college?

The NCAA has requirements in order to be eligible to play a sport in college:

  • Complete 16 Credits in the CORE courses (English, Math, Science, Social Studies)
  • Earn at least a 2.3 GPA in the CORE courses
  • Meet an increased sliding-scale standard (for example, an ACT sum (add all subject scores together) score of  52 requires a 3.0 high school core course GPA)
  • Successfully complete 10 of the 16 total required core courses before the start of their seventh semester (before senior year) in high school. Seven of the 10 courses must be successfully completed in English, math and science.
