College Center » NCAA



There are a few specialized things that student athletes need to do in order to be considered for recruitment by colleges and universities.

The most important thing is to file with the NCAA Eligibility Center. Student athletes should do this at the END of their junior year or the very beginning of senior year. You will need to take the SAT or ACT before the end of junior year in order to be eligible. You must also send in an official transcript with all courses from junior year listed. 

Use Reseda High School’s CEEB Code (052620) when registering for NCAA Eligibility Center.

Staying on Track to Graduate NCAA

Because we believe success in the classroom is just as important as winning on the field, we have standards to ensure student-athletes make progress toward a degree – every year and every season. They need to meet these standards to be eligible to play.
