Midwest College Planning works with athletes and their familes with the future goal of success in mind. We want to help you find a school where you will not only succeed athletically, we want you to succeed academically. We have the difficult conversations about ability and aptitude with both parents and students so we are on the same page when it comes to recruiting.
Initial Eligibility Center
All high-school athletes wishing to compete in college must register with the Initial-Eligibility Center. Please do not contact the NCAA national office with inquiries regarding an individual’s initial eligibility status, including whether transcripts, student release forms, etc., were received or about when you will be cleared. The Clearinghouse maintains and processes all of the initial-eligibility certifications.
