    At Holy Names we are building ath-leaders. Our athletes are leaders on the field, in our classrooms and our community. Athletics is a family at HNHS; student-athletes receive ample support to help them develop as whole students. 100% of our student-athletes participate in community service year-round. Additionally, we produce high caliber athletes that are top recruits for intercollegiate athletics. Our athletes are continuously acknowledged with all-league honors.

  • As the “front porch” of the NCAA and the first stop on your way to becoming an NCAA student-athlete,
    the NCAA Eligibility Center continually strives to make your registration and certification
    experience positive and beneficial. The NCAA Eligibility Center encourages you, the student, to
    take an active role in this process. Take time to complete the registration yourself or jointly with
    your parents/guardian(s). As a future student-athlete, it is important that you become personally involved.
    The NCAA Eligibility Center is here to help you. Visit eligibility center or contact the
    customer service staff at 877/262-1492 for assistance.

    Are you interested in becoming a collegiate student-athlete? Here are some tips to help you start planning:

    • Frosh and Sophomores

      • Work hard to get the best grades possible.

      • Take classes that match Holy Names’ List of NCAA Courses.
      The NCAA Eligibility Center will use only approved core courses
      to certify your initial eligibility.

      • You can access and print your List of NCAA
      Courses at eligibility center. Click the NCAA College-
      Bound Student-Athlete link to enter and then navigate to the
      “Resources” tab and select “U.S. Students” where you will find the
      link for the List of NCAA Courses (or click here for direct the link).

      • At the beginning of your sophomore year, complete your online
      registration at eligibility center.

      • If you fall behind, do not take short cuts. Classes you take
      must be four-year college preparatory and must meet NCAA
      requirements.

    • Juniors

      • Register to take the ACT, SAT or both and use the NCAA Eligibility
      Center code “9999” as a score recipient. Doing this sends your
      official score directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center.

      • Continue to take college preparatory courses. Double check to
      make sure the courses you have taken match our List of
      NCAA Courses.

      • Ask the Registrar to send an official transcript to
      the NCAA Eligibility Center after completing your junior year.
      If you have attended more than one high school, the NCAA
      Eligibility Center will need official transcripts from all high
      schools attended. (The NCAA Eligibility Center does NOT
      accept faxed or emailed transcripts/test scores.) The NCAA
      Eligibility Center now accepts transcripts electronically through
      Docufide/Parchment.

      • Before registering for classes your senior year, check with your
      counselor to determine the number of core courses
      that you need to complete your senior year.

    • Seniors

      Take the ACT and/or SAT again, if necessary. The NCAA Eligibility
      Center will use the best scores from each section of the ACT or
      SAT to determine your best cumulative score.

      • Continue to take college-preparatory courses.

      • Check the courses you have taken to match our List of
      NCAA Courses.

      • Review your amateurism responses and request final
      amateurism certification on or after April 1 (for fall enrollees) or
      October 1 (for spring enrollees).

      • Continue to work hard to get the best grades possible.

      • Graduate on time (in eight academic semesters).

      • After graduation, ask the Registrar to send your
      final transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center with proof of
      graduation. The NCAA Eligibility Center accepts transcripts
      electronically through Docufide/Parchment.
