The most important thing is to file with the NCAA Clearinghouse.

  • Student athletes should do this at the END of their junior year or the very beginning of senior year.
  • You will need to take the SAT or ACT before the end of junior year in order to be eligible for the clearinghouse.
  • You must also send in an official transcript with all courses from junior year listed.




For information about the rules and regulations of the

NCAA Clearinghouse





In order to be eligible for the NCAA Clearinghouse, students must take the appropriate number of academic courses.

Students should speak to their counselor to ensure they are taking the right courses for eligibility.

Academic Eligibility

Your ability to become a member of any high school sport team in LAUSD is based upon a number of factors, but one of the most important is your academic eligibility. LAUSD requires a minimum 2.0 GPA (Grade Point Average), or a certain number of grade points, in at least four (4) classes to be eligible to play a sport. Your final report card at the end of each semester (fall or spring) is what is typically used to determine your eligibility depending upon what season your sport falls under. 

Calculating one's GRADE POINTS for eligibility is rather simple just follow these steps:

1.       Figure out how many total points you have for all of your classes, in which you received a letter grade, by adding together the point values. (See the point scale below)

Point Scale

A = 4 points

B = 3 points

C = 2 points

D = 1 point

F = no points


2.       Once you have added together all of your grades, divide by the number of classes you are enrolled in. Check below to see if that number meets the minimum eligibility requirements.

If you have 6 classes, you need a minimum of 12 points.

If you have 7 classes, you need a minimum of 14 points.

If you have 8 classes, then you need a minimum of 16 points.



Here is a Sample Report Card

Biology B                  D                      1

Computers               F                      0

Number of Classes = 6          Total Grade Points Earned =  14
