    NCAA Guide

    16 core courses are required for student athletes to be eligible to participate in Division I and Division II athletics

     
    4 years of English
    3 years of Mathematics (Algebra II minimum)
    2 years of Lab Science (Biology/Chemistry)
    2 years of Social Science (World/U.S. History)
    1 year of additional English or Math or Science
    4 additional years of a core class or Foreign Language
     
    High School athletes also must be sliding scale criteria for SAT/ACT scores and grade point average.

     

    NCAA legislation permits a student to receive credit for a core course only one time. As a result, if a student repeats a core course, the student will only receive credit once for the core course, and the highest grade earned in the course will be included in the calculation of the student's core course grade point average. Likewise, if a student completes a course that is duplicative in content with another core course, the student will only receive credit for one of the duplicative courses, and the course with the highest grade earned will be included in the calculation of the student's core course grade point average.
