NCAA Division 1 Sliding Scale


Important info for the NCAA Division 1 Sliding Scale

The NCAA division 1 sliding scale is in place for those athletes that have lower GPA’s, but have higher ACT/SAT scores and vice versa.  This gives high school athletes some wiggle room to become eligible with the NCAA Eligibility Center.  A very important note to make is that each university has their own academic requirements.  Just because you are cleared through the NCAA does not mean you can get into a certain school.  Make sure you check the school’s academic requirements.  The division 1 sliding scale only determines NCAA eligibility and not eligibility for each division one institution.

There is no sliding scale for division two or division three.  Just the NCAA requirements for each level to determine eligibility status.
