NCAA Requirements

Any student interested in participating in NCAA Div. I & II athletics in college should have four years of high school English, and must be familiar with other special NCAA requirements and the specific Exeter courses which may not meet these requirements. It is important that students are aware of these requirements early in their high school careers so that the appropriate course of study can be planned. In addition, for the University of California system and other state colleges and universities, students must understand the specific state's definition of "minimum curricular requirements" and how they are related to Exeter's course offerings.

A list of NCAA courses certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center is available at To check whether specific courses offered at Phillips Exeter Academy are certified to meet NCAA requirements, you must use the school CEEB code 300185. Please be aware that courses offered through off-campus programs must be certified through the particular program.
