Students who wish to play Division I or Division II athletics in college must register with the NCAA.   You can do this as early as freshmen year, but juniors need to place this high on their "to do list." Registration should be completed by the end of their junior year.

Registration Directions

  1. Visit and read the account descriptions (i.e. do you want division 1/2 or 3).
  2. Decide if you would like to sign up with a Certification Account or Profile Page. If you plan to compete at an NCAA Division I or II school, select the “Create an Account” button. If you plan to compete at an NCAA Division III school or are currently unsure where you want to compete, select the “Create a Profile Page” button. Reminder: you may transition from a Profile Page to a Certification Account, but may not move from a Certification Account to a Profile Page.
  3. On the next page, provide a valid email address to create either account and begin the registration process. Be sure you provide an email address that you check frequently and will be active even after you complete high school.  I recommend using your personal email account just make sure that it is appropriate to be used for college admissions purposes.
  4. Check your email inbox for an email containing a verification code and return to Enter your verification code and continue registering.
  5. Complete the Account, Basic Information and Contact pages.
  6. Certification Accounts will be prompted to pay the nonrefundable registration fee. Students have 30 days after receiving a verification code to pay before their account is dropped out of the system. After submitting payment, return to your Dashboard to complete registration.
  7. Both accounts types will be prompted to enter their most recent Schools information.. Please include all schools, even if you did not receive grades or credits.
  8. After entering School information, Certification Accounts will be taken to the Sports page. Please select the sport(s) you plan to compete in and continue to answer the Sports questions.
  9. After completing the School section (Profile Pages) and Sports section (Certification Accounts) you will be taken back to your Dashboard.
  10. Pay the registration fee online ($90). Profile pages do not need to pay unless they transition to a certification account.

You are eligible for a registration fee waiver if you have received a waiver of the SAT or ACT fee. You must have an authorized high school official submit your fee waiver documentation online after you complete your registration.
