Daily Compliance Item- 2/19/13- 13.6.3, 13.9.1- Registration with the NCAA Eligibility Center

Here is a recently posted educational column on LSDBi clarifying what constitutes registration with the NCAA Eligibility Center for purposes of providing an official visit or written offer of athletic aid.

 

NCAA Educational Column- 2/14/13-Definition of Registration with the NCAA Eligibility Center (I)– states that NCAA Division I Bylaws 13.6.3 and 13.9.1 include a requirement that a high school or preparatory school prospective student-athlete be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center and on the institution’s Institutional Request List (IRL) before being provided an official visit or written offer of athletically related financial aid.

A prospective student-athlete is considered to be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center once the individual has successfully completed the online registration process on the NCAA Eligibility Center website, which includes an agreement to the Ethical Conduct statement per NCAA Bylaw 10.1, and has made a successful payment or indicated that he or she is eligible to receive a fee waiver. The prospective student-athlete will receive a payment confirmation email, as well as an email confirming successful registration with his or her 10-digit NCAA ID.

To qualify for a waiver of the NCAA Eligibility Center fee, the prospective student-athlete must already have received a fee waiver from ACT or SAT. If the prospective student-athlete has not been granted a fee waiver by ACT or SAT, he or she is not eligible for a waiver of the registration fee.

Prospective student-athletes who qualify for a fee waiver may be provided an official visit or written offer of athletically related financial aid even if the high school official has not yet attested to the fee waiver. However, the prospective student-athlete must be registered with the NCAA Eligibility Center.

To determine whether a prospective student-athlete has successfully registered, please follow these steps:

Log on to the NCAA Eligibility Center’s Member Institution Portal and enter your institution’s login information. Navigate to the IRL tab and then IRL Activation to search for the prospective student-athlete.

If the prospective student-athlete does not appear on the IRL Activation search page, that student has NOT registered and is NOT permitted to take an official visit or be provided a written offer of athletically related financial aid.

If the prospective student-athlete’s name and NCAA ID appear, the student is considered registered, and is eligible to receive an official visit and a written offer of athletically related financial aid.
