Prospective Student-Athlete Form
If you are interested in competing in intercollegiate athletics for the Northern Illinois University, please complete the following form and submit it to the athletic program in which you are interested in participating.
This form is NOT an official university application.
Please be aware that this is not a secure form.
For general correspondence, you can also use the Athletic Department Directory.
So you are aware, NCAA rules and regulations prohibit coaches and administrative personnel from sending letters or electronic mail to high school students until after September 1 of their junior year in high school.
While we are not permitted to write or e-mail high school students if they are not eligible per the above restriction, high school students are permitted to telephone coaches and administrators prior to the completion of their junior
year in high school, but only at the high school student's expense.
Those who are freshmen or sophomores in high school are also permitted to contact the admissions office for information regarding Northern Illinois University and its academic programs. You may call our admissions office at (800) 892-3050 or (815) 753-0446 or e-mail at http://www.admissions.niu.edu.
WARNING: If you are a student-athlete enrolled at another four-year institution or if you have been enrolled at another four-year institution in the last year (Division I, II or III), NCAA rules and regulations strictly prohibit us from having any communication with you, directly or indirectly, until that institution grants our institution permission to contact you.
You may obtain this permission to contact at the compliance office of your current or previous institution.
