NCAA Division I eligibility changes for 2016

Uncategorized

The initial-eligibility standards for NCAA Division I student-athletes are changing for the class of 2016 and beyond. The NCAA has asked for our help in getting the word out to high school counselors and coaches across the country.

Student-athletes entering a Division I college or university after August 1, 2016 (this year’s 10th grade class), need to meet these new standards in order to practice, compete and receive aid in their first year of college.

Some of the changes include:
• Student must have a 2.3 in NCAA core courses to compete
• Student must have a 2.0 in NCAA core courses to receive scholarships and/or practice
• Student will not be allowed to re-take classes in senior year to improve their GPA
• Changes to core class and test score requirements

Visit the NCAA’s 2point3.org site for further details as well as resources for you and the coaches at your school. If you have any questions, please direct them to admissions@georgiasouthern.edu.

For assistance in the college search and selection process, contact the College Resource Center at www.crccolumbusga.com or call 706-366-2993.

College Visit Tips (www.goseecampus.com)

Uncategorized

1. Start Early 

A campus tour shouldn’t be something that parents spring on their student. Begin visiting colleges by your junior year. Carve out time to talk about life after high school, and come up with some ways that he or she can feel more prepared for what’s coming next.

2. Take Smaller Trips
Think about starting with a campus tour at a nearby college. It’s okay if it’s not the student’s highest target. He or she might be interested in seeing what goes on at a school without the pressure of trying to decide if it’s the right place for the next four years. These visits can also help students get a feel for campus size and setting (city versus suburban versus rural.)

3. Don’t Just Take a Trip. Plan Your Trip.
Organizing your trip doesn’t mean pinpointing what you will do each minute of each day. It just means having the logistics and most important activities scheduled so that you have the freedom to explore and improvise.

4. Make It about the Experience.
If you’re a student, try to keep in mind that this whole process is about finding the right college for you: a place that supports your academic, personal, and extracurricular interests. If you’re a parent, help your student keep this perspective on the college search.
