National Collegiate Athletic Association, Overland Park, KS.
This book is intended as a guide for reviewing core-curriculum eligibility of student athletes who have completed any portion of their secondary education in a non-U.S. educational system. Beginning with the 1994-95 academic year, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Initial-Eligibility clearinghouse will certify all student-athletes who wish to participate in Division I and II sports. Sections of the book include instructions for use of the guide; NCAA interpretations of core-curriculum and test-score requirements; a conversion chart for British-patterned grading scales; an alphabetical list of countries and education plans; division I initial eligibility indices, with comparisons of grade point averages, SAT, and ACT scores between the United States and other countries; multi-country references; and a list of NCAA members who have indicated interest in helping member institutions evaluate foreign records.
