NCAA Guidelines and Approved Courses

IVS Full Service courses are recognized by the NCAA. Credit Recovery courses are NOT approved as the NCAA does not allow for ‘testing out’ of course content. All NCAA athletes should be enrolled in a Full Service course.

A complete list of IVS courses that are approved by the NCAA can be found on the NCAA website. Students, parent/guardians and counselors will need the following CEEB Code to access the list: 140188.

If a student needs to be completed in a course by a certain date in order to meet eligibility requirements, that date should be communicated to the IVS teacher upon enrollment into the course. IVS teachers need adequate lead time to adjust pacing charts, grade student work and or allow for systems to update following grade completion. Please allow up to 48 hours for a grade to appear on the student's IVS Completion Report following the teacher completing the student’s final grade.

The NCAA prefers all high school courses be reported on the local school transcript. Please work with your school to ensure IVS courses transfer onto the local school transcript with an indication that the courses were transferred from IVS.

Students should request their IVS Completion Report (transcript) be uploaded to the NCAA Eligibility Center by submitting a help desk ticket.

Any NCAA questions should be directed to the Coordinator of Curriculum at [email protected]

Note: Students need to add Illinois Virtual School to their high school list on the NCAA Eligibility Center in order for the IVS Completion Report (transcript) to be uploaded. IVS’ NCAA code is 140188.
