The National Federation of High School State Associations (NFHS) partnered with the NCAA Eligibility Center to develop and produce an online initial-eligibility course designed to assist coaches and the high school community on helping their student-athletes and families with the NCAA registration and certification process, as well as the academic standards needed to study and participate at an NCAA Division I or II college.
