    National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)

    Students who are interested in participating at a NCAA Division I or Division II college must satisfy the requirements of NCAA Bylaw 14.3, commonly known as Proposition 48.

    In order to meet the core curriculum requirements for Division I and II institutions, students must complete 16 NCAA approved core courses, earn a minimum GPA, and earn an ACT or SAT score that matches your core course GPA.

    For NCAA Division I, students must complete four years in English, three in mathematics (at the level of algebra 1 and above), two in social science, two years in natural or physical science (including at least one laboratory class), one additional course in either English, mathematics, natural or physical science, and four years of additional academic courses in any of the aforementioned areas or world language, philosophy or nondoctrinal religion [e.g., comparative religion] courses.

    For NCAA Division II, students must complete three years in English, two in mathematics (at the level of algebra 1 and above), two years in social science, two in natural or physical science (including at least one laboratory class), three additional courses in English, mathematics, natural or physical science, and four years of additional academic courses in any of the aforementioned areas or world language, philosophy or nondoctrinal religion [e.g., comparative religion] courses. These requirements apply to the NCAA Eligibility Center, not East Brunswick High School graduation requirements.

    A core course is defined as “a recognized academic course designed to prepare a student for college-level work (as opposed to a vocational or personal-service course).  Courses that are taught at a level below the high school’s regular academic instructional level shall not be considered core courses regardless of course content.”  All core courses are noted with an asterisk (*) next to their name.  A full year course is one unit and a semester course is one-half of a unit. 

    The blue square symbol  in the course guide next to the title of a course indicates that the course meets the core course requirements for the NCAA. 

    Students should contact their coach or school counselor to learn more about the other two components (SAT and/or ACT scores and GPA) in order to complete the requirements for eligibility.  For additional information regarding eligibility requirements, you may visit the NCAA Eligibility Center website at www.eligibilitycenter.org
