Student Athletes

Welcome to Prep48! Congratulations, on taking the first and most important step to becoming a college athlete. High school athletes that plan on participating in a sport at a NCAA Division I or II school must meet specific academic requirements in order to be eligible. Prep48 is a web-based program that allows students to track their progress toward meeting these NCAA initial eligibility requirements.

Having a Prep48 account simplifies the initial eligibility process. Students know where they stand at all times. Once their account is established they will have access to view their account in order to monitor their progress, update core courses, as well share their results with college coaches.

Students should check with their guidance counselor to see if their high school has a Prep48 account.

Counselors and Coaches

Welcome to the Prep48 Site. Prep48 is a web-based program that allows students, parents, coaches, and guidance counselors to simply and accurately track a student-athletes progress towards meeting NCAA initial eligibility standards. The program ensures that everyone involved in helping a prospective college athlete has quick and easy access to their core course information.

What happens at your school when a college coach calls and asks about an athlete’s status concerning their initial-eligibility? One scenario begins with a mad dash to the guidance office to research a student's transcript. Once the transcript is located, it is usually visually scanned for core courses. After that, maybe a hand calculation is done to determine the student's core course GPA. Prep48 eliminates these time consuming steps. When a school sets up an account with Prep48, all the critical initial-eligibility data is automatically calculated, stored, and easily accessible to everyone advising the student-athlete.


Special Programs

Welcome to Prep48. How many of the athletes that you either coach or advise have an understanding of NCAA initial-eligibility requirements? There are too many examples of student-athletes that earn athletic scholarships to college only to learn at the last minute that they are ineligible because they have not taken the right core courses. A Prep48 account allows student-athletes to monitor their progress throughout their high school years, thus eliminating any last minute surprises.

When student-athletes register for an account, they have the option of having one or our experienced counselors review their high school transcript, evaluate their core courses, and set up their account for them (Premium Account). Another option is for them to input the data on their own with step by step instructions from us (Standard Account). After a student's courses and grades are input into the Prep48 program it instantly calculates their core course G.P.A. gives the corresponding SAT or ACT score needed to qualify. Once a student establishes an account, they can access it at anytime to either monitor or update.

As a special program member your athletes will also receive a discount code allowing them to register for an account at a substantial savings.
