  1. I am about to prepare and mail in the final transcript for my ds who graduated and will start college in the fall. When he applied last fall I sent in a transcript that reflected the work we have done, but I did not worry about NCAA requirements - I didn't even know about them. Ds drove up to the school to try out for JV basketball a few weeks ago, and he made the team! The coach sent a letter and said ds needs to register for NCAA eligibility. I looked at the website and am a bit confused. Here's where my question comes in. The original transcript which gained him acceptance has plenty of credits. Ds is attending with a partial merit scholarship based on ACT scores. However, my class "titles" are not NCAA titles. If I change them for the NCAA transcript, do I change them for the final transcript I send in to the university? Also, there are some classes in which we did not use textbooks. We used TOG for Lit and History, but there is no central text. For health we did not use a text, but a self study program designed by me involving research and papers along with CPR and first aid. How will they react to no textbooks? Is a computer program OK (ie Visual Link)? Thanks for your help. I hate jumping through hoops!!!
  2. I just finished registering my 10th grade son for the June ACT. When I was at the page where I selected the score report choices, I had an idea. Last year, I sent his scores nowhere. I was not going to send them anywhere this year either, but then I realized that I get 4 free score reports, and ds did well enough on the ACT last year for the NCAA guidelines. So, I called and checked with Kevin at the homeschool dept of the NCAA, and he said that if I sent the test scores in 10th grade, they would keep them and wouldn't need to see updated ones. That way, I can use the free reports next year (or whenever) to send to colleges. Thought I'd share that idea. :001_smile: Just in case you don't know about the NCAA guidelines for the ACT, they are based on the students Core GPA. If a student has a 3.0 GPA, for example, they need a combined (math+science+reading+english) ACT score of 52 (620 for SAT), at least according to the 2011-2012 NCAA guide. The higher the GPA, the lower the ACT/SAT score needed. HTH!
  3. Another child, another challenge! Please list your favorite NCAA approved textbooks for high school. I especially need to find something suitable for Chemistry (non math/science guy) and maybe Spanish II, but any and all textbooks you've used that were NCAA approved are appreciated. ISBN listings are the easiest for me if you have the numbers. Thanks!
  4. I'm just beginning this research since my child in question is only in the 7th right now. But since it sounds like using the wrong curriculum in high school could prevent her from being eligible, I need to start understanding this now. It appears to me that you have to use textbooks, as opposed to something like Omnibus or TOG. Is this true? It's also unclear to me if you have to use online classes for core courses. Which courses are considered "core"? Math, science, history, english/literature? Is that it? Is it possible to use something other than textbooks, especially for history/literature? I hate the idea of throwing out a rigorous program for a textbook just for a chance at college sports. She's a gymnast so while she is on target for college level ability etc, it's a tough sport. It's torture on the body and you are always just one bad landing away from a career ending injury. So it seems a bit premature to completely revamp our schooling for something that may never happen. Thoughts? Heather
  5. The hopes of a lot of homeschoolers and prospective homeschoolers were dashed today when the Senate failed to pass the bill out of committee by a vote of 7-8. The bill had been passed by the House of Delegates and the governor was behind the bill. My daughter is a rising ninth grader who really wanted to be homschooled next year if the "Tebow Bill" had passed. She is an avid tennis player who made All State in her eighth grade year and wants to play at the NCAA level. Without the ability to play tennis at the high school level, homeshooling is not a viable option for her. I have spent a lot of time sorting through the options over the last three weeks and we both were looking forward to embarking on a homeschool path. Maybe the General Assembly will pass it next year. It has been a pleasure using this Board as a tool to get up to speed and I pray that God's blessing will be on you and your family.
  6. I've heard this mentioned several times, and that they won't share it. How uncooperative. :glare: Could we start a list of texts the NCAA, in your personal experience, HAS APPROVED? For our personal planning purposes? :001_smile:
  7. This may be a really ignorant question, but: do you have to meet NCAA eligibility requirements (using approved curriculum) to play any college sports, or do you only have to meet the requirements if you want to get a sports scholarship? Thanks! :001_smile:
  8. I'm such a wreck about planning 8th grade and then high school. I know it will all be fine. I was feeling much better after identifying some great online classes. But then I started educating myself about NCAA eligibility. I don't necessarily anticipate either of my boys getting college sports scholarships. However, I could see both of them wanting to play on their teams - not necessary division I. We have talked about how their sports accomplishments could help them to get into a Div3 school that is academically competitive. Anyway, it's sort of a quagmire, isn't it? I guess my question of the night is this: If I use a course with a teacher online - say a composition class - and I know it's not approved for eligibility, may I include it in my "English I" class taught by Mom? In other words, could my English I class be listed for credit and grade and then include details like we used XYZ text, completed certain chapters, read certain novels, and participated in an online composition class with this teacher. So it's my class - English - but she's teaching the writing part?
  9. For those of you who have tackled the NCAA eligibility rules with homeschoolers, did you use NARS or Clonlara (or some other organization) to help "legitimize" your transcript? For my dd, who will be in 9th grade this fall, I had been planning to provide a home transcript listing different types of classes (online, cc, and mom-designed) while following NCAA course and title requirements. But after scanning through the WTM archives, I'm starting to wonder if I need to take the extra precaution of placing dd's transcript under an oversight agency. :confused: What do you think?
  10. Has anyone helped their child navigate NCAA eligibility as a homeschooled high schooler? Our 7th grader is hoping to fence at a Div I school during college, so we are starting to look into core course requirements and such. What curriculum(s) did you use that provided eligibility for your students? Any other tips or suggestions for learning about and navigating this process? This is all new to me and a bit daunting. :tongue_smilie: Thanks!
  11. I have a friend who is thinking about offering consulting services to homeschoolers who are trying to navigate the waters of NCAA eligibility from an academic standpoint. She herself was a collegiate athlete in two sports, has a law degree, has worked for a university in the area of NCAA eligibility, and is currently a USA swim coach. First of all, do you think there would be a market for this type of help? For those who have been down this path already, could you offer any insights or tips that might help her figure this out? Any help would really be appreciated. She is a very talented individual, and I would love to see her succeed! Thanks!
  12. I have been procrastinating investigating NCAA eligibility rules for homeschoolers, but since ds2 is halfway through 9th grade and I thought that dealing with the NCAA was an absolute nightmare, I figured I really needed to get on the ball. (Ds2 is interested in being on a sailing team if the college he attends has one -- his current top choice does.) Well, the whole process looks very easy. I am dumbfounded. I know that it has changed a LOT, but is it REALLY this easy? https://web1.ncaa.org/eligibilitycenter/pdf/home_school_checklist_example.pdf For some reason, I thought he needed to take courses from "approved" schools or have an accredited diploma. I guess not? And does anyone know when I should bother signing him up with the NCAA? Is the end of his junior year okay? I feel like I must be missing something -- this is WAY too easy!
  13. Sue in St. Pete asked me to give more information on my dealings with the NCAA. First, when I read the requirements on their website, I was initially very intimidated. I didn't want anyone scrutinizing our work. But, the kids want to participate in sports, so I had to do it. I posted some questions on College Confidential's hs board where there are many experienced parents who assured me the NCAA was not out to stop high achieving kids from participating in sports. I think the main thing is make sure you meet the requirements and put things in their terms, ie, English 9. During the summer, the NCAA changed its website and information was no longer available online, and I had to call them to make sure they had received the paperwork needed to get my rising senior cleared so he could go on trips this fall. I was on hold for a LONG time, but when I finally got through, they put me through to someone who worked with the hsers files. She was able to quickly put her hands on our file and assure me everything was there and in order and he was set to go on trips. She went and checked with someone else because she said she did not want to give me "bad information". It was not until I hung up that I realized I had not gotten her name. Oops. My plan is to have him all done with coursework we designed at home by early to mid-spring so if the NCAA has questions or issues we have plenty of time to clear it up. Since FLVS classes are NCAA approved, he can finish the year with those classes. I want to encourage you all to make the effort if your children are interested in sports. My son will not get athletic scholarship money, but his sport has opened up many opportunities to him. He has gone on 2 fully paid trips, one to a top LAC and one to an Ivy. He will likely go on the 5 trips allowed by the NCAA and is having a blast traveling and meeting people. Kate
  14. I am looking for someone who has gotten through clearinghouse and your child now plays a sport in college. My son is a glofer and in the 11th grade. We just signed up through clearinghouse and I am wondering how strick they are with the texts used and just about the whole process. Any advice would be great. Thanks! Lora in NC
  15. So lets say you are have Comm. College credit and your child wants to play college sports in Div 1 or 2, how does that all work out? Can you actually have to much credit that might disqualify you? My husband played Division 1 but didn't have CC credit- so I don't have a clue.
