3. Gaining eligibility to play at Concordia

The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics’ Eligibility Center provides initial-eligibility certification for student-athletes who plan to participate in athletics at an NAIA college or university like Concordia. First-time NAIA participants — high school students, transfers from non-NAIA schools and those who have never participated in athletics at an NAIA-member school — must register with the online service.

All student-athletes interested in enrolling at an NAIA institution like Concordia are encouraged to register well in advance of their enrollment/participation date to ensure the certification is completed on time.

Fee waivers will be verified by your high school.

Other eligibility

Certification of NAIA eligibility is separate from NCAA certification – the NAIA and NCAA are two different associations with different eligibility rules and certification processes.
