Students who plan to play sports at an NCAA-member school must be certified as eligible to compete by the NCAA Eligibility Center. Students must meet academic standards as defined by NCAA-member schools and maintain amateur athlete status. It is the student’s responsibility to be informed and apply for eligibility.

General guidelines for college-bound student-athletes:

  • Make sure you choose high school courses that are approved by the NCAA on the NCAA High School Portal; MSHS's NCAA High School Code is '480797'.
  • Maintain the required GPA.
  • Your sophomore year, register with the NCAA Eligibility Center.  This step can be completed at any time but registering early allows students to plan accordingly.
  • Maintain and verify your amateur status.
