What are the Division II Core Courses Required By the NCAA?

Below is a list of the NCAA Division II Core Courses.  The NCAA requires potential recruits to meet certain core courses to be Division II eligible.  Most high school athletes think that the NCAA looks only at their GPA when determining eligibility status.  That is not true.  The NCAA is also concerned about your core courses.  That means you cannot use gym, music, etc to calculate your GPA so hit the books and keep your grades up!

Effective August 1, 2018

You must graduate high school and meet ALL the following requirements:

  • Full Qualifier
    • Complete 16 core courses.
    • Earn a core-course GPA of at least 2.200.
