NCAA Amateurism

What is the NCAA Amateurism Certification Process?

  • The NCAA is concerned and is monitoring amateurism issues related to both international and domestic prospective and transfer student-athletes (prospects).
  • Prospective and transfer student-athletes and teams will be required to complete an online questionnaire about their athletics history. (contracts, salaries and other issues)
  • Based on the information provided by the prospective or transfer student-athletes, a certification decision will be rendered:

* If the responses to the questionnaire do not reflect amateurism issues, a certification decision will be automatically generated.              

*If the responses to the questionnaire reflect potential amateurism issues, the NCAA amateurism staff will review the cases and issue a certification decision.

Who will be certified?
