REQUIREMENTS FOR A SPORTS SCHOLARSHIP
But how do you even get a sports scholarship? Here you can find out more about the path you will take with us.
You cannot start preparing for a sports scholarship early enough. Even up to 2 years before starting your studies in the USA is reasonable. However, we have also able to place athletes who only contacted us up to two months before the start of their studies. A short window of time should not prevent you from filling out our free opportunity assessment.
If your academic and sporting profile fits, you will receive all the information including a free consultation so that you can make a decision about your future. After choosing a service package, the process begins.
Estimating Your Chances
Your chance at an athletic scholarship depends on the quality and number of American talents in your sport.
The better you are in your sport, the higher your chance to get a high scholarship.
The sooner you go to the US after you graduate, the better. The coaches always look at the upside an athletes brings to the table.
Athletic performance is the gateway to a good scholarship. Good academic performances can further enhance your scholarships.
In addition to the athletic requirements for a sports scholarship, you also have to meet some academic requirements. However, these are not as strict in the USA as they are in other parts of the world. In the USA, you can theoretically start studying without a high school diploma.
High school graduation
Just like here, a high school diploma is sufficient to qualify for studying in the United States. Big plus: In the USA there is no numerus clausus due to the higher financial barriers.
Secondary School Certificate AND Apprenticeship
If you started an apprenticeship right after graduating from secondary school, you can start studying in the USA after graduation. This option is limited to universities that belong to the NAIA association.
Secondary School Certificate
Yes, you’ve read that correctly! Even with a secondary school leaving certificate, there is the possibility to study in the USA. The General Education Test (GED) makes it possible! This test certifies that you have successfully completed high school and entitles you to study at a junior college. After two years of basic studies, you will receive a certificate that enables you to complete your bachelor’s degree at a regular university in two more years.
YOU ALREADY STUDY? NO PROBLEM!
You don’t have to bury your dream if you’ve already started studying at home. There are now two options for you. Either you switch directly to the USA to finish your bachelor’s degree or you switch to the USA for your master’s degree. In order to have the best possible chances, you should try to stick to the standard period of study. For the master’s program you need a completed bachelor’s degree.
