How to Fill Out Paperwork for the NCAA Clearinghouse


If you're good enough to play NCAA Division I or II collegiate sports, you'll have to get cleared by the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse before you're able to be seriously recruited, earn a scholarship or be eligible for play. The NCAA Clearinghouse looks at your grades, test scores and classes to determine whether you have met the requirements to play college athletics. Follow these steps to comply with the NCAA Clearinghouse.

  • Get sn eligibility form from the NCAA Clearinghouse website when you are a junior in high school. There are forms for both U.S. and international students. Ask your family to help you fill out the form because you will need your social security number and a Visa or Mastercard to complete the process.

  • Input your social security number, name, address, date of birth and email address in the opening section.

  • Look up your high school code using the NCAA Clearinghouse's automated list. Input when you started and when you're going to graduate. Add any other high schools you have attended.

  • Indicate which sport or sports you are planning on playing in college. Put down all sports you're interested in, even if you're not getting a scholarship for that sport.

  • Decide whether you want your correspondence with the NCAA Clearinghouse to be through email or through the regular mail. Choose the email option to expedite your eligibility process.

  • Choose a personal identification number so you can pull up your paperwork once it has cleared. Pay the $50 processing fee. This is a one-time fee and you can use a Visa or Mastercard on this step. You can also use a check or money order, but it will delay the process until either has cleared.

  • Agree to the terms of the NCAA Clearinghouse, and have a parent type his or her name at the bottom of the form. This will serve as an electronic signature. Your paperwork is now complete. Come back to the site in a week using your personal identification number to check the status of your application.

Tips & Warnings

  • The NCAA Clearinghouse will access your ACT and SAT scores directly from those companies. You need at least an 18 on your ACT or an 850 on your SAT to be eligible.
  • The NCAA Clearinghouse will contact your school for grades and class information. You need at least a 2.0 in NCAA Clearinghouse approved classes to be eligible. See the NCAA Clearinghouse website for a list of acceptable classes.
