NCAA Eligibility Center and the Sliding Scale

Part of the registration process for the NCAA Eligibility Center is reporting your standardized test score. Below you will find a scale that is used to determine a prospective student-athletes academic eligibility.

This can become confusing if your high school does not use a Grade Point Average system of assigning grades. To help gauge your GPA, think of it this way:

A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1

To use the chart, find your GPA in the left column and check that row to see what the minimum test scores you will need score to be eligible.
