At the end of  your Junior year all athletes should register with the  NCAA Clearinghouse. Go to website & have a  credit card handy.  Read registration forms. Enter proper school codes & make sure  you put right information on your SAT & ACT forms so they are sent to the clearinghouse.

Even if you are not sure  you want to play in college you should register. You might want to join crew or another sport when you get to college.  Then you will not be eligible till your clearinghouse registration is clear. It is much easier to do it now !

All Seniors should do it now if you have not already done so.

Stepinac school code 335940

Home School Information
.
  Stepinac Code 335940
This information is for those who have attended a home school or nontraditional school for either all or part of their high school career. In order to evaluate your certification status for purposes of NCAA athletic initial eligibility, please submit the following information to the eligibility center:
  • Completed student release form.
  • Fee Payment.
  • Standardized test score (ACT and/or SAT) must be submitted directly from the testing agency. Note that test scores received on a home school transcript cannot be used by the eligibility center. A Student Score Report or scores taken directly from a Student Score Report cannot be accepted by the eligibility center for initial-eligibility purposes.
  • Home school transcript that includes:
    • Course titles;
    • Course grades;
    • Units of credit for courses;
    • Grading scale (if other than A-F letter grades); and
    • Signature of the home school administrator (the parent or other person who organized, taught and evaluated your home school coursework).
  • Transcript from any other high school, college, nontraditional program attended (mailed directly from the issuing institution).
  • Proof of high school graduation, including specific graduation date.
  • Evidence that home schooling was conducted in accordance with state laws (a written statement from the home school administrator verifying compliance with state home school legislation). Please attach any supporting documentation.
  • List of texts used throughout home schooling [text titles, publisher and in which course(s) used].
If your home school coursework was taken through an established nontraditional program (e.g., correspondence, internet, tutoring, etc.) that evaluated your coursework and issues transcripts, please have that program provide a copy of your transcript and provide contact information so that the eligibility center can obtain further information, if necessary.

The eligibility center will evaluate home school coursework only after all required documents have been received. After this information is received, the eligibility center may need to request additional information or clarification before completing your certification.

Please direct all inquiries regarding this matter to the NCAA Eligibility Center, ATTN: Home School Evaluation.

If you were home schooled in New York, please note that the eligibility center cannot accept "proof of graduation" from a diploma issued by a home school in New York, because the state of New York does not recognize diplomas that are issued by a home school. If a student is home schooled in New York and does not graduate from a high school, that student would have to provide a GED certificate in order to meet the NCAA's graduation requirement.

NCAA Eligibility Center address: P.O. Box 7136, Indianapolis, IN 46207
