Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Who is considered a prospect?
A prospect is defined as any student who has started classes for the ninth grade. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospect if the institution provides the individual, or his or her relatives or friends, any financial assistance or other benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students generally. The individual remains a prospect until the student:

1) officially registers and enrolls in a minimum full-time program or studies and attends classes in any term of a four-year collegiate institution's regular academic term,

or

2) participates in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term,

or

3) officially registers and enrolls and attends classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment and receives institutional athletics aid.


When can a coach call or write me as a HS prospect?
NCAA Clearinghouse Calendar 2005 - 2006

What is the NCAA Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse?
The NCAA Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse was created by the NCAA to ensure that all students initially enrolling at a DI institution meet the same eligibility requirements to receive athletically related financial aid, practice and compete for a DI institution. All students who are entering MSU as a first-time freshman must also register with the NCAA Clearinghouse and meet the NCAA standards as certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse to be eligible to compete, practice and receive athletically related financial aid. To learn more or register with the NCAA Clearinghouse, please visit: http://www.ncaaclearinghouse.net.

What is the NCAA Amatuerism Clearinghouse?
The NCAA Amateurism Clearinghouse was created by the NCAA to ensure the same standard of amateurism is applied to all students who plan to enroll and compete for a DI institution on or after August 1, 2007. This will require that any transfer who has not competed at the DI level and any high school prospect will need to be certified by the NCAA Amateurism Clearinghouse before being permitted to represent MSU in intercollegiate competition. Information about the NCAA Amateurism Clearinghouse and the NCAA Initial Eligibility Clearinghouse can be found at http://www.ncaaclearinghouse.net. A prospect can apply for both types of certification at the same time.

How do I contact a MSU coach?
You can find contact information linked directly below this paragraph. If you plan on calling an MSU coach, as a prospect, you may place a call to the coach at any time; however, a coach may not return a phone call to you, or otherwise call you prior to July 1 following your junior year in high school (in men's basketball, a coach may call prospects as early as June 1 of the prospect's sophomore year).

I am a 4-year transfer, when may I speak with an MSU coach?
An MSU coach may not speak with you about the possibility of a transfer prior to receiving permission from your current institution to speak with you about the transfer. To obtain this permission, please contact your current institution and request permission to speak with MSU. The written permission from your current athletic director may be faxed or mailed to the MSU athletic department.
