Log in with Google SSO (single sign-on), Clever, or Class Link. Or if your school does not use Google or a third-party software, please enter your school email address as your username.

View Your Dashboard

After signing in, you will see your dashboard with a snapshot of your eligibility plan.

  • Green means student-athlete is currently on track for eligibility.
  • Yellow means student-athlete is currently academic redshirt or partial qualifier status.
  • Red means student-athlete is currently non-qualifier status.

Click to view your eligibility status and review guidance to remedy core credit, GPA, and/or test score deficiencies.

Use the Eligibility Plan

Each student-athlete’s College Athletic Report on Eligibility (CARE®) can be used to show projections for courses in progress. Students and families can share with prospective college coaches to accelerate the recruiting process.

Each eligibility plan identifies key barriers and how to fix them to achieve a successful eligibility pathway.
