How NCAA “Non-Qualifier” Status Affects DI Freshman Athletes

If you are a high school athlete who is hoping to compete at an NCAA DI college, you should be aware of the new NCAA DI Freshman Eligibility Requirements.

With the new NCAA DI Freshman Eligibility Requirements now in place, if you are classified as an NCAA “Non-Qualifier,” you won’t be eligible to practice or compete your freshman year and you will also not be eligible to receive an athletic scholarship at an NCAA Division I or Division II college.
