Student-athletes need to maintain a 2.3 cum GPA in order to qualify for Division I collegiate athletics. This is why Carnegie Schools-Riverside requires all student-athletes to maintain a 2.3 GPA each term.

It is the student’s responsibility to register with NCAA and to follow the proper protocol to request for transcripts to be uploaded to the NCAA portal. Ideally, students should register with NCAA during their sophomore year (see www.eligibilitycenter.org) and request for their transcripts to be submitted at the end of their junior year and again after graduation. Students must complete ten of their sixteen core courses before their senior year of high school. Other requirements for NCAA are the students responsibility to research through the NCAA eligibility center.

In order to submit SAT and ACT scores to the NCAA eligibility center, students should use the code 9999.
