In order to participate in athletics and receive athletically-based financial aid, you must register with the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse and meet eligibility standards. If you wish to register on-line with the Clearinghouse, you must have a valid U.S. Social Security Number and a VISA or MasterCard. If you received a fee waiver for the ACT or SAT exam and are requesting a waiver of the Clearinghouse fee, you may indicate this in Section VI. Individuals unable to file electronically, or who do not want to provide a Social Security Number, should complete a paper version of the Student Release Form available from your high school counselor or through the NCAA website.
Transcripts and test scores must be sent directly to the Clearinghouse. These documents cannot be faxed or submitted online. There are many reasons why a student's academic document could be determined to be "unofficial" and therefore unacceptable for Clearinghouse purposes. Test scores must either come to the Clearinghouse directly from the testing agencies (selection of the Clearinghouse can be made using code "9999") or on an "official" high school transcript, normally using the testing agencies' labels. Please note that Student Score Reports and test scores taken from a Student Score Report cannot be used by the Clearinghouse.
To register with the Clearinghouse, please click on the Domestic Student Release Form located on the NCAA Clearinghouse website and begin.
