CCR - Student Athlete



Traditionally students have been told not to register with the NCAA until September of their senior year, when sixth semester grades are locked.  Students are now encouraged to register as early as their freshman year, to set up a profile and, if interested in DI or Dii sports, registering during their sophomore year.  Registering early provides a depository for ACT/SAT tests (send all scores), it can facilitate college athletic contacts and registered students will get NCAA updates and notifications.  Students must still send a copy of their sixth semester grades to the NCAA Clearinghouse as soon as they are available prior to the senior year.
At 7PM on Monday, November 21, 2016, the D214 College Counselors hosted their annual program for high school athletes: "Advising the College Bound Student Athlete" at the Forest View Educational Center (2121 So. Goebbert Rd., Arlington Heights).  The presentation was conducted by Maureen A. Harty, Associate Director of Academic and Membership Affairs of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).  You can download a copy of the handouts provided by Ms. Harty, her PowerPoint presentation as well as a copy of the Student Athlete Booklet by clicking on the links below.
