Rules for Prospective Student-Athletes
As a prospective student-athlete (prospect) you have the potential to become a GW Colonial. Naturally, the University and Athletics Department would like for all of the prospects to be eligible to become a Colonial. In order for you to be eligible to compete at GW, the NCAA has specific guidelines that must be followed. This website has been set up to help educate prospects about what they need to do and what they need to refrain from doing before they can be eligible to compete for GW. Please note that the scope and complexity of NCAA legislation precludes complete coverage on this website. We suggest, therefore, that you forward additional questions to the Athletics Compliance Office at 202.994.6282 or email@example.com or Athletics Director at 202.994.6650 or go directly to the website links at the bottom of this page.
ATTENTION: All prospects intending to enroll in an NCAA Division I or II institution for the first time on or after August 1, 2007 must complete the NCAA Amateurism Certification questionnaire located on the NCAA Eligibility Center website. (If you enrolled full time in a Division I or II institution prior to the fall 2007, you do not need to complete the amateurism questions.) Also, prospects who enroll at NCAA Division I and Division II institution beginning fall 2007 MUST supply ACT or SAT scores to the NCAA Eligibility Center directly from the testing agencies. Test scores on an official high school transcript will not be used. Please use the code 9999 to have your test scores sent directly from the testing agency to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
