Any current high school sophomore, junior or senior who wishes to participate in collegiate athletics at an NAIA Division I or II college or university should register with the NAIA Eligibility Center. To be eligible to participate at a NAIA school, student athletes must meet two of the three following criteria: Achieve a minimum of 18 on the ACT or 860 on the SAT, achieve a minimum overall high school grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale, or graduate in the top half of your high school class.

In order for college-bound student-athlete’s academic certification to be processed, they must have test scores submitted to the NAIA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agency.  Test scores are matched to the student's NAIA Eligibility Center account by name, date of birth and address.
