If you are a high school student who is considering participating in athletics in college, you should create an account with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) as soon as possible.
You need to be certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school. Create a Certification Account with the NCAA and the organization will guide you through the process. It should be noted that you need to create a Certification Account to make official visits to Division I and II schools or sign a National Letter of Intent.
Create a Profile Page if you plan to compete at a Division III school or are not yet sure where you want to compete. You’ll receive an NCAA ID and the organization will send you important reminders as you complete high school.
