New! Eligibility Center Account Changes

The three account types now available are:
  1. Free Profile Page Account: This account is best practice as the place to start for most student-athletes, and can be transitioned to a Certification account when needed. For students not sure in which division they want to compete; students registering to play at NCAA-certified basketball events; students younger than ninth grade; or domestic student-athletes who plan to compete at a Division III school, our free Profile Page account is the right choice. This account can be transitioned to either Certification account when needed.
  2. Amateurism-Only Certification Account: For international student-athletes who plan to compete at a Division III school. This account may also be right for domestic student-athletes transferring from a two-year school to an NCAA Division I or II school who have not previously been certified. This account includes a $70 registration fee for all student-athletes. This account can be transitioned to an Academic and Amateurism Certification account if the student-athlete decides on Division I or II instead.
  3. Academic and Amateurism Certification Account: For students wanting to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school, sign a National Letter of Intent, or who are preparing to take an official visit. This account includes a $100 registration fee for domestic students/$160 for international students. (This account type is the same as the old Certification account.)
