Fees and Payment Information

Through a secure transaction, your credit card (or debit card) can be used for payment of the registration fee.  Cards accepted: Visa, Mastercard and Discover (we do NOT accept AMEX).

Prospective students have immediate access to the full registration process after the credit or debit card transaction is completed successfully.

Fee structure:

  • $80.00 for U.S. and Canadian students enrolling full-time at an NAIA school in the first full term following high school graduation
  • $125.00 for U.S. and Canadian college transfer students, current NAIA attendees, or students with more than a summer break after high school graduation
  • US $135.00 for international students

The NAIA Eligibility Center registration fee is not refundable. If payment is made prior to a fee waiver being received, the payment is not refundable. Fee waivers are available based on need for U.S. students only.

Fees will be refunded if Eligibility Center staff determine an individual has already participated in NAIA athletics and that information becomes available in a reasonable time frame and before an NAIA Eligibility Center determination has been made. To request a refund, fill out the Refund Request Form.

Only the registrant, the registrant’s immediate family or those upon whom the registrant is legally dependent may pay this fee.

Payment by credit or debit card is the preferred method, however, if you are unable to pay by credit or debit card, you may send a money order for the required amount to the address listed below. The student’s first and last name as well as their Eligibility Center ID number must be included on the money order. Personal checks will NOT be accepted.
