NLI Signing Period Starts

The NLI signing period for both men’s and women’s basketball starts Wednesday, April 17 and will last through May 15 for NCAA Division I, and August 1 for NCAA Division II. All other NCAA sports that have not had a signing period yet will have their signing period from April 17 – August 1, 2013. [This will include sports other than football, field hockey, soccer, track and field, cross country and men’s water polo.]

Points to Remember when signing the NLI

Walk-On Students

Since an NLI must have a grant-in-aid attached for a specific dollar amount, a non-scholarship walk-on student-athlete is not permitted to sign an NLI.

NCAA Eligibility Certification

Prospects may sign an NLI before receiving final NCAA Eligibility Certification. However, by signing the NLI, the prospect agrees to submit all necessary documents to the Eligibility Center in order to receive an eligibility certification status.

If the prospect is later declared a final non-qualifier, the NLI will become null and void.
