Athletes who transfer from a junior college to an NCAA athletic program should know that there are specific academic requirements that must be satisfied while attending the junior college in order to be eligible in their first year of attendance at an NCAA university.
Those academic requirements will vary depending upon the following factors:
1. Was the athlete a Qualifier or a Non-Qualifier when they graduated from high school?
2. Is the athlete transferring to an NCAA Division I, Division II, or a Division III program?
3. Has the athlete previously attended a four-year college before attending the junior college?
