Welcome New Student-Athletes!


Below is a checklist of things you need to do in preparation for becoming a student-athlete at the University of Michigan.  

  •  Make sure you have requested your Final Amateurism Certification from the NCAA Eligibility Center, which is necessary to complete your amateurism certification.  Log in to your NCAA Eligibility Center account at www.eligibilitycenter.org.  When you log in, look under the “My Eligibility Status” heading for a “Request Final Amateurism” button.  You will be asked to verify that the information you provided is still accurate or provide any updates necessary and submit your request.
  • Make sure you have sent an official copy of your final high school transcript, showing your graduation date, to the NCAA Eligibility Center at:

P.O. Box 7136
Indianapolis, IN 46207-7136

  • In order to get set up in our student-athlete health and welfare system, create an account in our NExTT system.  Once that is complete, fill out a Health History Questionnaire and electronically sign the various waiver forms.  All of the detailed instructions are in this document -->  Student-Athlete Health and Welfare (click to download PDF)
  • Complete your student-athlete paperwork at jumpforward.ath.umich.edu.  You will use your UM account and password to log in. 
  • Complete your Housing Contract - (again, you will need your UM account and password to do this).
