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:
In percentage terms, 75% of the NCT field will be determined by teams' performance at the National Qualifying Tournaments (NQTs). The remaining 25% will be selected to balance the field and to afford an NCT experience to all participating HBCUs every few years. The exact formula for determining the 75% 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.
