How to help students with their
Eligibility Center Registration

High school administrators play an important role for students as they transition from high school to college. Help your college-bound students realize their dreams of playing collegiate athletics.

  • Let your students know about the opportunities for 20,000 freshman student-athletes each year who earn part of the $500 million in aid from NAIA colleges and universities.
  • Encourage students to find out about opportunities to play NAIA college sports at
  • Remind students who register for the ACT and SAT to include the NAIA code 9876 on the list of places test scores should be sent.
  • Send official transcripts, class rank and fee waivers through your school's free and secure High School Portal.
  • Check out the resources available to you.

Register your high school with the NAIA Eligibility Center so you can ensure a smooth communication link for electronic transcript submissions and monitoring the status of students from your school.
