Your Academic Eligibility Experts

Every year, student-athletes are academically ineligible for college sports because they don’t meet NCAA eligibility requirements. Honest Game helps both two and four-year colleges drive enrollment, enhance recruitment, and help support student-athletes.

Honest Game transforms high school transcripts and test scores into a trusted college athletic compliance report using verified academic data. Our software identifies a student’s academic eligibility status so that coaches, student-athletes, and recruiters know where they stand and how to adjust.

Athletic compliance simply means that individuals in a sports league must adhere to certain requirements and expectations if they wish to participate. In the case of the NCAA and NAIA, there are many academic requirements that must be met and upheld for athletes to remain eligible. Athletic compliance for these organizations consists of meeting core course GPA requirements, taking the necessary number of credits, etc.
Honest Game is a first-to-market software as a service (SaaS) platform for high school staff, club sports, parents/guardians, and student athletes to track the complex NCAA and NAIA academic eligibility requirements to play college sports. Through the use of different software and partnerships, we have created a centralized hub for students looking to participate in college athletics.
Honest Game’s CARE® (College Athletic Report on Eligibility®) provides a step-by-step academic roadmap to college access, including strategic guidance and short-term goals that align every student-athlete’s passion for sport with their motivation for academic success.
Honest Game is an access tool designed to support all student athletes, not merely the student athletes who hope to play in college. Honest Game’s short-term strategic guidance drives participation in sport and student learning outcomes (SLOs), generating a variety of college access opportunities for all high school student-athletes (i.e., academic scholarships, recruited walk-on offers, and admission to highly academic colleges).
The NCAA Eligibility Center is a clearinghouse. All student-athletes must be academically cleared by the NCAA to be able to play at an NCAA-sanctioned college/university. Honest Game is not a clearinghouse, but rather a guide to ensure all student-athletes have a step-by-step roadmap to navigate the complex eligibility requirements and be cleared to play college sports.
Honest Game is committed to keeping your student data private and secure. At Honest Game, our mission is to provide every student athlete a fair and equitable opportunity to access college.
