NAIA schools strive to help student-athletes grow on all levels. The focus is 

on accomplishing academic objectives as much as it is on competing in 

collegiate sports. 


Not only do small colleges offer the benefits of reasonable class sizes and more opportunities to get 

involved outside the classroom, the NAIA offers student-athletes: 


  • „ Fewer recruiting restrictions with greater opportunity for contact between prospective students 

        and college recruiters 

  • „ Maximum opportunities to participate in regular season contests and national championships 

  • „ Flexibility to transfer without missing a season of eligibility 

  • „ A focus on education and character development 


Below is the NAIA Guide for the College Bound Student Athlete.
