NCT Part 2 Qualification

Participating HBCUs and their team members must submit the Part 2 Qualification materials by January 24, 2023.

Important: If students do not return to campus until after that date, you must submit the team registration (roster) and have the participants complete their participant registration before the holiday break.

The criteria and process for selection of teams for the NCT is as follows:
The NCT field will be determined by teams' performance at the National Qualifying Tournaments (NQTs). The exact formula for determining the advancing from the NQTs depends on the distribution of slots at the NQTs.

Online team and participant forms are password protected and use a secure server. Submissions are kept strictly confidential.
Please use the following chart to reference the two sections of the NCT Part 2 Qualification process:

Team Registration

This form MUST be completed BEFORE any Participant Registration forms may be completed.

Submit your roster (4 players + 1 faculty/ staff coach), travel information, rooming list AND registering any Institutional Reps (IR's). You must submit the full legal name and social security number of all participants.

Once we receive and process the team Registration Form, only then can those individuals (and only those individuals) complete the Participant Registration form.

Please check all spellings, travel dates and other issues that could affect a player's availability carefully with the players before submitting the roster.

You will be asked to pair your team members into hotel rooms. Room and tax will be paid for 5 people (1 faculty/staff and 4 players). Unless you request otherwise, we room students with students and staff with staff in rooms for 2 people (each with his/her own bed). Any player or coach not paired with another member of your NCT Team will be paired with a roommate of the same type and sex.

The cost of a single room for the coach is $1,000 (there is no discount).

Institutional Reps (IR's) pay a registration fee of $1,500 to attend the NCT plus the cost of their hotel room. There is a limit of 30 IRs in total, so we are limiting IRs to 1 per HBCU. We will book travel for Institutional Reps only upon receipt of an email request to do so. Your institution will be invoiced for IR registration and hotel room, and must pay the invoice by 4/1/2024.
