NAIA Information


The NAIA requires all college-bound athletes to register with the NAIA Eligibility Center. Before being declared eligible to play at an accredited NAIA college, athletes must go to the NAIA website and submit certain personal information as well as test scores and transcripts to be cleared to play.

The NAIA Eligibility Center will determine your eligibility based on your academic record and additional information you provide.  Here’s how it works:

 High School Students

If you will graduate from high school this spring and enroll in college this coming fall, the requirements are simple. High school graduation, plus two out of three of these requirements

— Achieve a minimum of 18 on the ACT or 860 on the SAT (Critical Reading and Math only.)

— Achieve a minimum overall high school GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.

— Graduate in the top half of your high school class.

 Early Decisions for High School Seniors

Students who have completed their junior year of high school with an overall 3.00 GPA on a 4.00 scale OR students who have completed the first half of senior year with an overall 2.5 GPA on a 4.00 scale, plus the minimum test scores required (18 ACT or 860 SAT), may receive an eligibility decision prior to high school graduation. To receive an early decision, register with the NAIA Eligibility Center, have your high school send official transcripts to the Eligibility Center and contact ACT or SAT to have their test scores sent directly (the NAIA code is 9876 with ACT and SAT).
