Sending a Class Rank Letter
NAIA rules are pretty specific when it comes to class rank letters. In addition to coming in a sealed, school-stamped envelope to the address listed on the sample below, the letter needs to be signed by the student-athlete's high school principal, headmaster, vice-principal or guidance counselor.
Class rank is not available to GED or home school students as an option to meet eligibility requirements.
If a student’s high school does not rank, a student can still meet the other two requirements needed to satisfy initial freshmen eligibility requirements:
- Have an overall high school grade-point average of at least a 2.00 (on a 4.00 scale)
- Meet the minimum ACT or SAT test score
Here is a sample of a correct class rank letter to help you out.
