National Collegiate Athletic Association

The Athletic Certification Office is responsible for obtaining, evaluating and documenting the academic credentials in accordance with the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and conference eligibility rules for approximately 300 student-athletes. 

The NCAA has specified satisfactory progress requirements to determine the eligibility of continuing student-athletes, and these requirements must be met each semester.  The Athletic Certification Office, housed in the Office of the University Registrar, works directly with academic advisors and the Athletics Department Academics and Compliances offices to determine athletic eligibility for each semester. 

The Athletic Certification Office is also responsible for financial aid certification.  This includes maintaining the accuracy of the aid package, processing the approved Athletic Grant-In-Aid scholarships, and posting all financial aid data into MavLINK and both financial aid and academic eligibility data into the NCAA’s CAi software program.
