Why was the NCAA Amateurism
Certification Process Created?

NCAA President Miles Brand
authorized the creation of the
amateurism certification process
after hearing the NCAA
Membership’s concerns about
amateurism issues related to both
international and domestic
prospective and transfer studentathletes (prospects)
Purpose

Provide institutions with the consistent
amateurism information regarding
prospects.

Assist in maintaining competitive equity in
recruiting

Reduce some of the burden on the
institutions.

Promote student-athlete well-being.
Who will be Certified?

The amateurism certification
process will certify all prospects:
High school
 Two-year
 Four-year
 Domestic and Foreign


All entering a NCAA Division I
institution for the first time on or
after August 1, 2007.
Other Information

The amateurism certification process is operated
through online registration (same website as the
eligibility center).

Prospects are required to complete a questionnaire
about their athletic participation.

The NCAA Eligibility Center staff handles data collection
and customer service support.

No new amateurism rules have been created.

The fee for the certification will remain $65 for
domestic prospects and $95 for international
prospects. This is a one-time fee, which includes both
the initial eligibility and amateurism certification.

Quick Case Study

MaryAnn is a soccer student-athlete who
graduated in May 2007. She registered
with the clearinghouse and paid the $65
registration fee, but then decided to
attend Jason Strong’s Community College
of the Northwest for two years. If
MaryAnn transfers to WSU, would she be
required to pay the registration fee again?
Case Study Answer

No. Before enrolling at WSU,
MaryAnn will only need to reactivate
her registration form with the
clearinghouse and update her
information. Since she already paid
the registration fee, she will not be
charged a second time.
