What is a Matriculation letter? Why is it required?

Future student-athlete frequently asked questions



A matriculation letter may be required if you complete post-graduate coursework (courses after you have graduated from high school) or took the SAT or ACT after you graduated from high school. The purpose of this document is to confirm your first full-time enrollment in any college or university. A matriculation letter may also be assigned if it is needed to complete your amateurism certification.

Once the requested matriculation letter is received, the document is typically reviewed within 24-48 business hours. This task will be marked complete once the document is reviewed by staff.

Who can submit a matriculation letter?

Your NCAA Division I or II college or university staff submits this document. Two-year colleges or any other college or institution cannot provide this to the NCAA Eligibility Center on behalf of the student.
