The NAIA Eligibility Center, at PlayNAIA.org, is responsible for determining the NAIA eligibility
of first-time student-athletes. Students must have their eligibility determined by the
NAIA Eligibility Center, and all NAIA schools are bound by the center’s decisions.
Every student interested in playing sports at NAIA colleges for the first time in 2011-12
or any year after that needs to register online. This applies to high school seniors and transfers
from both two- and four-year colleges.
