National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics - NAIA

The NAIA Eligibility Center is responsible for ensuring student-athletes are academically eligible to compete at its member schools. Athletes must register with the NAIA Eligibility Center, creating an online profile and sending in the appropriate documentation to prove they meet the eligibility requirements. Most recruits will create their NAIA profile right after their junior year of high school or early their senior year.

It’s important to note that the NAIA Eligibility Center is only responsible for making sure recruits meet the academic requirements. It’s up to the student-athlete to understand the academic requirements and make sure they are on track to meet those requirements, with the help of their high school guidance counselor and administrators.

NAIA eligibility requirements for U.S. Freshman

Incoming U.S. freshmen need to fulfill and provide documentation for two of the following three criteria:

  • Athletes who take their standardized tests between March 1, 2016 and May 1, 2019 need to achieve a minimum of a 16 on the ACT or 860 on the SAT. After May 1, 2019, athletes must get either an 18 on the ACT or a 970 on the SAT. Athletes must have the testing centers send their scores directly to the NAIA using the code 9876.
  • Achieve a minimum overall high school grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. Athletes need to send their official transcript to the NAIA, either via the High School Portal or as a hard copy in the mail.
  • Graduate in the top half of their high school class. If this information isn’t included on the athlete’s official transcript, the athlete needs to provide a class rank letter.
