College Bound Athletes
If you plan to compete athletically at the college level start asking questions early and prepare yourself academically.
- Are you on track to meet NCAA academic requirements?
- What is the graduation rate of the athletic program and your sport at the colleges in which you are interested?
- What support services are available and how will your academic progress be tracked?
- Am I taking the right classes at CHS?
(You can check to search for a high school’s list of NCAA courses here at https://web3.ncaa.org/hsportal/exec/hsAction. Search by the high school’s six-digit NCAA High School Code or six-digit CEEB/ACT Code or, if you don’t know the school’s NCAA High School Code or six-digit CEEB/ACT Code, you may search by city/state and high school name.)
You need to qualify academically and you will also need to be cleared as an amateur student-athlete.
The links and guides below are resources intended to help you and your family understand the process in obtaining an athletic scholarship and the rules that apply.
Choosing a college is difficult, so choose wisely to take the first step to that road of success.
The recruiting process must balance the interests of prospective student-athletes and the Association’s member institutions.
The NCAA recruiting bylaw is designed to promote equity among member schools in the recruitment of prospective student-athletes and to shield the recruited individuals from undue pressures that may interfere with their scholastic or athletics interests.
Below is a link to the current NCAA recruiting calenders for specific sports and other information.
