Real Excitement for Student-Athletes and Counselors in the ConnectEDU National Network™

September 13, 2008 - As we all know, learning takes place in a lot of different environments for high school students – on a playing field, in the midst of cleaning up a park, on a stage. At ConnectEDU, we believe that the growth of a student’s personal and educational development is directly impacted by their level of involvement in activities outside of traditional classroom learning. And, as a former Division I, college athlete (wrestling) I can relate to the importance of these lessons on a personal level.

As a result, ConnectEDU is pleased to announce that we have partnered with the NCAA to make it easier for student-athletes to continue their pursuit of non-traditional learning opportunities as student-athletes. ConnectEDU and the NCAA have partnered to allow students utilizing one of ConnectEDU’s college and career planning solutions (Prep Headquarters, Connect!) to send their academic credentials (i.e. transcript) directly to the NCAA Eligibility Center electronically. The simplification of this process will help students and counselors cost-effectively send, track and monitor the receipt of their transcripts to the NCAA. Another WIN for students and counselors… something that we hope these future student-athletes will get used to… WINNING!
