Academics play a huge part in the journey toward achieving a scholarship!

🔹NCAA Scholarship Fact🔹


It is very common to see student athletes sign an offer that involves a combination of athletic and academic scholarship awards. 🏀📚


This is another crucial reason that academic excellence is as important as athletic performance.


Division 1 programs require a minimum GPA of 2.3 and a minimum SAT score of 980 for the “Academic Sliding Scale” to be eligible for athletic competition.


BUT.... that usually won’t be enough to solidify your placement with that school.


🚫





The criteria for certain programs can be much higher, potentially pushing a GPA of 3.5+ and SAT scores of 1200+ 📈


Something else to remember is that Ivy League and Division 3 schools do not offer “athletic scholarships.”


Academics are a core component of acceptance into these schools, and will determine academic aid for Division 3 options.


Canadian U Sports schools also require an 80% academic average in order to be eligible for “Athletic Financial Awards.”


What’s the bottom line❓


Academic habits and performance will likely be a key factor in a student athlete’s post-secondary opportunities.


Regardless of the route.


Student athletes should focus on time management, study habits and goal-setting as early as possible.
