NCAA COLLEGIATE CONFERENCES LOCATED IN
THE SOUTHEAST & SOUTHWEST CONTACTS.

For those interested in being considered to officiate at the collegiate level as a football official, applications are accepted and reviewed generally January 1st to March 1st of each calendar year. Minimum experience criteria for consideration is a minimum of five to ten years of high school officiating experience AND generally five years of football officiating collegiate experience at ANY level with full knowledge of NCAA rules, seven man mechanics and be able to pass a strict physical agility program plus an extensive medical examination. If considered, a prospective official will be required to submit to a federal background check as well as a credit check.

Most conferences will request your previous year's schedule of high school and / or collegiate games. No other supplemental materials such as tapes or reference letters are needed during the initial application process.

Due to the size of the current staffs of most conferences and limited turnover, please be aware that conferences will only be selecting a small number of new officials each season. You may be assigned to scrimmages at colleges for evaluation purposes as well as an invitation to the annual conference workshop. All travel and expenses for all events are not covered by the conference until you become a member of their staff.

If there is any opportunity to observe you, you will be contacted by the conference(s) you have applied to.. Where there are never any assurances, a lucky few make it to the supplemental list of a conference which is the first step in full time contractual consideration.

Supervisors really are not impressed that you work minor league football. That may be best to discuss with the conference supervisor personally.

Realistically, if you have less than 10 years experience and no college games or scrimmages, your chances are slim. They become slimmer as you grow older as conferences are seeking young officials that can keep up with the new breed of backs and receivers.

But your first step is to write to the conference requesting an application. Google the conference you are interested in applying to and contact their office for either an officiating application or the address to send a letter directly to the supervisor requesting an application.
