Dear Eligibility Coach:
My son signed an NLI with a NCAA Division I school and has been admitted for
the fall. The compliance officer at his university sent an email to say the NCAA Eligibility Center does not have his final high school transcript. We had his high school send his transcript at the end of the first semester of senior year. Doesn’t the high school automatically send the final transcript as a follow up?
There is nothing automatic during the NCAA certification process. The high school guidance counselor doesn’t know to send any documents to the NCAA or NAIA unless a request is made by the high school student-athlete. There are many high school student-athletes 1Z1-871 who start the certification process, but do not complete the process for a variety of reasons.
It is best to always make a formal request for each document that you need sent to a university, the NCAA, or the NAIA. After making the request, you need to follow up to ensure that the request has been processed. High school guidance counselors are extremely
212-055 busy people working with many different students needing very different things. Never assume that anything is going to happen, especially when a scholarship is involved.
