Considering Attending a Junior College? Know the Junior College Transfer Rules!

As a follow up to my previous blog, Why You Should Consider The Junior College Option, I want to make sure you understand some key rules. This way you will be on the right path and have the ability to transfer without any hiccups.

Before you graduate from high school, you need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center. The NCAA Eligibility Center will determine if you are a qualifier, partial qualifier or non-qualifier. They will determine where you stand, based on the core courses you took in high school, your grades in those courses, and your scores on the ACT and/or SAT.

To avoid any hiccups, you need to be classified as a qualifier by the NCAA Eligibility Center and of course, be academically in good standing at the junior college you are attending, while completing the right amount of credit hours for each term of full-time attendance.

If you do not register with the NCAA Eligibility Center or do not meet the minimum requirements, you will need to graduate from your junior college, without taking summer classes, to transfer to a DI or DII program.
