Home Educated Athletes

The National Center worked for several years with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to establish standardized eligibility guidelines for home schooled athletes. According to the recently updated guidelines, freshman eligibility may be automatically awarded to home schooled athletes who have acceptable standardized test scores and proof they took at least 13 courses meeting NCAA’s core course standards.

National Center legal staff have repeatedly and successfully intervened on behalf of home schoolers having difficulty during the application process.

NCAA spokesman John Morris said that, during the 1998–99 school year, all 49 home schooled applicants for Division I and all 20 for Division II were approved.
