Important to remember!
*  Test score rule:  Test scores must be reported to the eligibility center directly from ACT or SAT (not valid on high school transcript).
*  High School core-course list:  Is yours up to date?  Verify the classes you are taking and/or scheduled to take appear on your high school’s approved core-course list.  Make sure to talk with your counselor to get this paperwork.
*  Amateurism questionnaire and final authorization signature:  Remember to log back in to your account and finalize your amateurism questionnaire before you enroll in college.  If you are beginning school in the fall semester (August), you will need to complete the amateurism questionnaire and sign the final authorization signature on or after April 1 prior to enrollment.  If you are beginning school in the spring semester (January), you will need to complete the amateurism questionnaire and sign the final authorization signature on or after October 1 of the year prior to enrollment.
* Make sure your core courses are not duplicates (ex. Biology and Agricultural Biology are considered duplicates by NCAA, meaning that NCAA will only count one towards eligibility.)  Talk to your counselor to verify courses!!!
