If you're planning on playing a sport in college, when should you sign up for the NCAA clearinghouse? I don't really understand the process. Thanks for any help!

To be eligible to play for a college team in the NCAA, you need to be cleared by the NCAA. This is basically just an application and approval process where you need to submit your high school transcripts and test scores so the NCAA can verify that you meet its minimum standards for college athletics. It is not necessary to do until you graduate high school -- you just have to have it when you start the sport in college -- but many who are recruited start the process in senior year and get conditional approval dependent on submission of final high school transcript, when final approval occurs.

My impression is that you should register with the clearinghouse after your junior year (so your transcript shows all you junior year grades.) I have heard coaches say if you wait till your senior year and then find out that you are missing some core requirements, it's too late to make them up and be eligible. The high school class of 2006 needs 14 core courses to be eligible but after that I think it goes up to 16. Check with your high school guidance office.
