What is Qualified Admissions, and what are the requirements?

To be admitted to a state university in Kansas (ESU, FHSU, KU, KSU, PSU, or WSU), students have to meet Qualified Admissions.

Students must complete the core curriculum with a minimum 2.0 GPA and meet one of the following:

*ACT score of 21 or higher OR

*SAT score of 980 or higher OR

*Graduate in the top 1/3 of the graduating class

The Core Curriculum: 
4 credits of English 
3 credits of Math (beginning with Algebra 1 or higher class) AND meet the ACT college readiness math benchmark of 22    OR complete 4 credits of Math (Algebra I or higher)
3 credits of Science (one must be chemistry or physics) 
3 credits of Social Science

3 credits of Electives (additional courses from English, math, natural science, social science, fine arts, computer/information systems, foreign language, personal finance, journalism, or career and technical education)

If a student does NOT meet any of the three ways for admission to a state university in Kansas, he/she can go to community college and earn 24 credits hours with a 2.0 GPA, then transfer to a state university. The student can also try to apply through the "10% window" to still be admitted to a state university without going to a community college first. 

KU has additional requirements to meet Qualified Admissions!

I WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN SPORTS AT AN NAIA COLLEGE; HOW DO I MEET ELIGIBILITY TO DO SO?

Information regarding NAIA eligibility can be found at www.PlayNAIA.org.

Who needs to register? Any student planning to participate in NAIA sports.

What happens when I register? You create a personal profile with the basic facts about your academic history and sports participation to date. You also have the opportunity to provide more in-depth information about your experience and accomplishments, plus the type of college you have in mind - size, location, areas of study, extracurricular activities. Then you are provided a list of NAIA institutions that match your interests. You can choose to have your profile sent directly to the schools - coaches and admissions offices - you choose.

FEE: $80

ACT/SAT SCORES: Have your ACT/SAT scores sent directly to NAIA using code number 9876.

NAIA and NCAA are separate from each other! It is possible you might register with both entities!

HOW IS ELIGIBILITY DETERMINED? Prospective student-athletes must graduate from high school and meet 2 of the following 3 requirements:

1. Earn an ACT composite of 18 or an SAT reading and math score of 860

2. Earn a cumulative high school GPA of 2.0 or higher

3. Graduate in the top 1/2 of the student-athlete's graduating class

To complete one's registration, be sure to have your final high school transcript sent to the NAIA.

How does a student-athlete meet NCAA eligibility if he/she wants to participate in sports at the collegiate level, either Division I or Division II?

Information regarding both levels of NCAA eligibility can be found at www.eligibilitycenter.org

The following steps MUST be completed by ALL prospective student-athletes to be eligible for competition at any university in any sport:

1. Log onto the web site: www.eligibilitycenter.org.

(Have your credit card in hand as there is a $80 processing fee.)

2. You will receive an e-mail with directions for completing your application to NCAA.

3. Ask your Guidance Counselor to send your transcript as soon as you have registered.

4. In April, the Amateurism Form will be available in your account. Make sure you submit it at that time.

5. Ask your Guidance Counselor to send your transcript upon high school graduation. 

6. Fill out and submit the on-line Amateurism Form.

*When registering for the ACT or SAT, have your scores sent directly to the NCAA; they will no longer accept them on an official high school transcript. Have your scores sent each time you take the ACT or SAT!

**Even though your ACT score is part of your official high school transcript, the NCAA requires that it is sent directly from ACT. Make sure you indicate you want your scores sent to the NCAA when you are registering for an upcoming ACT test. You can also order additional score reports from ACT. Information can be found atwww.actstudent.org.

NCAA's code is 9999.
