The NCAA’s dramatic changes to DI initial-eligibility academic standards are in effect for high school athletes in the class of 2016 and beyond. The changes include a higher minimum core course GPA, new credit requirements prior to senior year and limitations on retaking courses.

The wiggle room to correct academic shortcomings has been greatly reduced.
