  1. Don't be terrified. It really is not bad, just a little time consuming. There is no advantage nor is there a disadvantage to opening an account early. They never list individual core course worksheets as they are submitted. The courses will not get listed until a review is requested by a coach. This is how the task is listed on my DD's dashboard (except it has a green check mark in front of it) and how it was listed once I started turning in sheets: Missing Core-Course Worksheets 08/23/2017 So, it seems that once a core course worksheet is turned in they check the task off. I am assuming that once the coach makes a request and if it is determined during the review that they need something a new task will pop up in your tasklist. My daughter just happened to have enough core classes by the end of her sophomore year that her tasklist was complete. This is how the courses are listed now that her review is complete (when I click on the final qualifier link under academic status): ACADEMIC YEAR HS CODE CATEGORY TITLE GRADE GPA DIV I UNITS DIV I QUALITY POINTS Total 4.0 16.0 64.0 1 969999 English ENGLISH LIT 1 A 1.0 4.0 1 969999 Math GEOMETRY A 1.0 4.0 1 969999 Science BIOLOGY A 1.0 4.0 1 969999 Social Studies WORLD GEOGRAPHY A 1.0 4.0 2 969999 English ENGLISH LIT 2 A 1.0 4.0 2 969999 Math ALGEBRA 2 A 1.0 4.0 2 969999 Science CHEMISTRY A 1.0 4.0 2 741005 Social Studies WORLD CIV I A 1.0 4.0 2 969999 Social Studies ECONOMICS A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 English ENGLISH 101 A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 English ENGLISH 102 A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 Math COLLEGE ALGEBRA A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 Math STATISTICS A 1.0 4.0 3 969999 Science PHYSICS A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 Social Studies INTRO TO PSYCHOLOGY A 1.0 4.0 3 741005 Social Studies US HISTORY 2 A 1.0 4.0 Hope this helps.

  2. Thought I would share my experience with the NCAA Eligibility Center to quell any fears people might have. It was a straight forward process. My DD did a combination of classes. Some were completed at home, some with an online provider, and some dual enrollment at the local university. Summer before junior year: DD created an account and paid the $80 fee. I completed and submitted the Home School Administrator and Accordance Statement. I downloaded the core course worksheets and completed one for each class she took at home or with an online provider. I then signed and dated one sheet, scanned it, and pasted it into all the completed core worksheets. I emailed the core course worksheets according to the year the course was completed. So, all 9th grade classes were emailed together. The subject line stated my DD’s NCAA # and the grade level of the core course worksheets. In the body of the email I supplied a numbered list of all the items that were attached to the email. DD had taken the SAT before opening the account so we requested College Board to send a score report. After DD completed her junior year I sent a homemade transcript. I made sure that I included everything they listed on the Home School Checklist. Beginning of Senior year an evaluation was requested by the school that DD has verbally committed to play for. The evaluation took about 10 days. The NCAA Eligibility Center first listed only the college courses that she has completed. The account sat like that for a day or two and I was beginning to worry that they were not going to review the core course worksheets that I spent so much time on. Then all courses were removed. It sat like that for a few days. Then all of a sudden she was cleared to play. Both the dual enrolled college courses and the courses from the submitted worksheets were listed. YAY!! Things to note: 1. For online providers I listed myself as the teacher of record and the instructor’s name for other teacher. For assessments designed/developed by I listed the instructor’s name with approval from me. I also listed the instructor’s name with approval from me for assessments graded by. 2. I filled out the core course worksheets with the title and ISBN # of all books used. I also listed chapter names, topics covered, and the names of the labs completed. 3. My daughter has a hold on her account (long frustrating story) at the local university where she is taking her dual enrolled classes. A transcript has not been sent from this university to verify the coursework that I listed on her transcript. NCAA still approved her to play. 4. I gave one credit for each university course DD took. 5. DD does not officially graduate until spring but has been given Final Qualifier status. All that is left to do is request final amateurism certification sometime after April 1, 2019. 6. We will send official transcripts from the local university and from our home school after graduation. The process really wasn’t bad. It was a little time consuming to fill out the core course worksheets. I really think I put way too much effort into filling them out than what was really needed. I would echo what some people have said and not open an account until you know for sure that your child will be playing a sport that needs NCAA certification. But, I would recommend staying on top of the paperwork. I would be happy to answer any questions anyone might have.

  5. As someone who is about to start uploading all this info, this is the most disturbing part to me. It seems simple enough to have a task list available to show what has been submitted and what is still needed. Crazy!

  11. Wanted to jump in here. I have a daughter that plays tennis competitively. She travels generally twice a month for tournaments (usually we leave on a Friday and come home on a Monday or Tuesday). She has done both Blue Tent Honors English classes. At times she has felt a little overwhelmed with the workload, but it has taught her to prioritize and use her time effectively. One thing that helped was the ability to lighten or stop work on home based classes to give her the needed time to complete the online class work. She also would bring the work with her and do what she could in the car and online stuff when we had a wi-fi connection (hotel or restaurant). The classes worked great for us. It was better than anything I would have done with her and they were her favorite classes.
