NCAA Eligibility Center profile account

Student-Athlete Profile Account
When the NCAA Eligibility Center redesigned its registration website at www.eligibilitycenter.org , one of the most significant enhancements was the creation of the profile account.  The profile account gives college-bound student-athletes the opportunity to make the best decision about their college choices earlier in their high school careers. Students may now choose from the traditional certification account for those wanting to attend and compete at Division I and II schools, or a free profile account for those attending Division III schools and students who are not yet sure at what school they want to attend and compete.

Registration for a profile account is free and easy. Students should expect 10 to 20 minutes to complete a profile account. Also, if a student with a profile account decides to compete at the Division I or II level, they can easily transition their profile account to a certification account. (A registration fee of $80 (domestic/Canada) or $135 (international) is required to begin the certification process.) Please encourage your freshmen student-athletes to register for a free profile account.

The NCAA Eligibility Center, in partnership with the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), has updated the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Course available through NFHSLearn.com. Counselors and coaches can visit NFHSLearn.com  and complete the FREE initial-eligibility course. This interactive course familiarizes viewers with Division I and II academic requirements, as well as the Eligibility Center’s registration and certification processes required for college-bound student-athletes. It’s a great tool for you and your colleagues. Please pass it on!
