Two-year college: A college offering a two-year associate's degree. These colleges are sometimes called community colleges or junior colleges.

Four-year college: A college offering a four-year bachelor's degree.

Was your last full-time enrollment at a two-year or a four-year college?

Colleges which are part of the NLI program agree not to recruit a student-athlete who has signed an NLI. For more information, go to http://www.nationalletter.org.
