COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS

 

Just as the Orange County League and Mid Hudson League have their own sets of rules and bylaws, so do most colleges. The NCAA league, the NAIA league, and the NJCAA league all have different rules, regulations, and eligibility requirements. More information on specific rules and regulations, not outlined below, can be obtained from each leagues website:   www.ncaa.org, www.naia.org, or www.njcaa.org.

 

The NCAA:  -Made up of 972 member colleges split into three Divisions.

(Wrestling Schools: 85-Division 1, 38-Division 2, and 99-Division 3 Schools)

Wrestling scholarships are awarded in Division 1 & 2 and the wrestler must meet

The following academic requirements to be able to compete:

    -The SAT or ACT test must be taken by the spring of their junior year

     -The NCAA Clearinghouse Form must be completed after their junior year.

 

 Division 1  athletes must:

 -Maintain a H.S. Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better = 70 or “C” average

   in their 13 core courses and must meet a minimum SAT or ACT score based on

   a sliding scale.

-The higher the GPA, the lower the ACT or SAT score that is required. 

    (The ACT score is the sum of the four scores achieved on the test).

 Division 2  athletes must:

-Maintain a H.S. Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.0 or better = 70 or “C” average

   in their 13 core courses and must meet a minimum SAT or ACT score based on

   a sliding scale.

-Minimum Scores needed:   ACT =68  or   SAT = 820

    (The ACT score is the sum of the four scores achieved on the test).

    The higher the GPA, the lower the ACT or SAT score that is required. 

    Example:  If the GPA = 2.0  then ACT minimum = 86 or  SAT minimum = 1010

              But if the GPA > 2.5, then  ACT minimum = 68 or  SAT minimum =   820

Division 3  schools are prohibited from granting scholarships so they do not impose any academic requirements.
