NCAA Eligibility

College-bound student athletes preparing to enroll in a Division I or Division II school need to register with the NCAA Eligibility Center to ensure they have met all requirements. Our advisors are trained to assist students in meeting the State of Texas graduation requirements. Students seeking NCAA eligibility need to seek guidance from NCAA as their requirements may differ.

Recommendation Letters and Timelines

TTU K-12 advisors and teachers will write recommendation letters for college applications and scholarship applications for all full-time students. Please contact them at least two weeks before you need the letter.

Contact your advisor via email and they will then send you a “student information profile sheet” for you to complete. This enables them to write a more personal recommendation letter as they learn more about you. Advisors will be able to upload their letters to the Common Application if they are listed as your counselor or can send the recommendation letter to other universities or organizations. Teachers may be messaged within the course if they are your current teacher. If you need assistance obtaining a reference letter from a teacher, please let your advisor know.
