We are excited that you are considering  joining the great tradition of Pioneer athletics.  To make your journey toward becoming a student-athlete as smooth as possible, we want you to be aware of how the recruitment and admission process works.

You take the first step at the end of you junior year, when you register with the NCAA Initial Eligibilty Clearinghouse.  You can register online or print a hard copy of the release form and mail or fax it to the Clearinghouse.

You will also want to make sure you are eligible to participate in college sports.  From this site, you will be able to determine whether or not the classes you are taking will be applied toward your core requirements.

The next step is to apply to Sacred Heart University early in your senior year.  Finally, you sign the National Letter of Intent.  In addition, you may want to seek financial aid.  Use the links to learn more.
