NCAA Requirements for 2016 Graduates

ncaaDID YOU KNOW?  

THIS SUMMER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SUMMER OF YOUR LIFE IF YOU WANT TO PLAY BASEBALL AT THE D1 OR D2 LEVEL!!

The requirements are changing for students who enroll full time at an NCAA Division I school after August 1, 2016.

Students must graduate high school and meet ALL the following requirements:

  • Complete 16 core courses:

    • Four years of English

    • Three years of math (Algebra 1 or higher)

    • Two years of natural/physical science (including one year of lab science if your high school offers it)

    • One additional year of English, math or natural/physical science

    • Two years of social science

    • Four additional years of English, math, natural/physical science, social science, foreign language, comparative religion or philosophy

  • Complete 10 core courses, including seven in English, math or natural/physical science, before the seventh semester. Once students begin their seventh semester, they may not repeat or replace any of those 10 courses to improve their core-course GPA.

  • Earn at least a 2.3 GPA in their core courses.

  • Earn an SAT combined score or ACT sum score matching their core-course GPA on the Division I sliding scale, which balances their test score and core-course GPA. If students have a low test score, they need a higher core-course GPA to be eligible. If they have a low core-course GPA, they need a higher test score to be eligible.
