NCAA now will count CS towards eligibility
The NCAA has now revised their eligibility criteria, in favor of computer science: http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/eligibility_center/CoreCourseInfo/Common_Core_Course_Questions/engage.html. The NCAA does an audit of an athlete’s high school classes, to decide if they really did complete a high school degree (e.g., rather than four years of gym all day every day). Computer science did not used to count. Under the new criteria, computer science can count if the state recognizes it as counting. This is a win, and as I understand it, this is due to the efforts of Hadi Partovi and Code.org.
