INTRODUCTION

We are excited that you are considering joining the great tradition of Philadelphia University Athletics. To make your journey toward becoming a student-athlete at Philadelphia University as smooth as possible, we want you to be aware of some general information regarding the recruiting process for prospective student-athletes at Philadelphia University. The NCAA has created a comprehensive website for prospective student-athletes that details everything from initial-eligibility, recruiting, financial aid, and more. For extensive information regarding these topics visit the NCAA Guide for the College-Bound Student-Athlete.

STEPS TOWARD ELIGIBILITY

All student-athletes entering a Divsion I or II institution for the first time must be certified as academically eligible through the NCAA. This is done through the NCAA Eligibility Center.  To compete at Philadelphia University at the Division II level, you must complete a minimum number of core courses and complete a minimum grade point average and ACT/SAT score.  Be certain to review carefully the information provided in the Guide for the College Bound Student-Athlete regarding your initial eligibility.
