NCAA Eligibility

As a high school student embarks on graduating soon, the very thought of attending college may be overwhelming.  Moreover, you may be faced with many questions, and your expectation is that you receive solid responses from well-informed sources. The answers you receive may ultimately affect your educational obtainment in your chosen career path.  One such question may be, “which college will I spend the next four years of my life, and would it also satisfy my desire to participate as a student-athlete”.

We at Delaware State University, more specifically, the Office of Academic Services for Student-Athletes (ASSA), are committed in providing our prospective student-athletes with the tools necessary to become that National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Student-Athlete.  The first step is to familiarize yourself with not only the rules that govern NCAA Initial Eligibility, but also bring to your attention the deadline dates that have been put in place by the NCAA.

For additional information, or assistance, please do not hesitate to visit or call our office located at the W. C. Jason Library on the 2nd floor, or call 302.857.7542.
