Information regarding NAIA eligibility can be found at

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: $90

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!
