Counseling: NCAA

Welcome to Hillcrest's NCAA page! If there is a possibility you will be involved in any athletic programs at the college level, you need to make sure that you are NCAA eligible. This work needs to be done while you are still in high school. The resources below will help make sure you're eligible by the time you graduate. 

The NCAA Eligibility Center is your first stop - students are encouraged to set up an account by the end of their junior year. Just follow the step-by-step instructions.

This Quick Reference Sheet shows what 16 core courses you need to take by the end of your senior year, as well as the minimum ACT/SAT score and GPA with which you can be eligible. Please meet with your counselor to make sure you meet eligibility requirements and are registered for enough core courses.
