The purpose of the College And Junior Tennis Status Report is to help everyone keep up with who's turning pro and who's signed to attend a specific college or transferred from one to another. Information on this page is updated as soon as we receive it.

The Status Report now corresponds its pages to the college signing periods. This page will continue through the August signing period for the 2006-07 season, For signing for the 2005-06 season and players who transferred or turned professional before November 2005, click here.

The majority of the world does not distinguish athletes as professional or amateur. That is not the case in the United States. Though the USTA has passed a "Call Item" to allow professional players 18 and under to compete in USTA National events, the NCAA still has very specific guidelines on amateur status.


Note: The College And Junior Tennis Status Report is based on confirmations from schools and agents, not player decisions. Players will not be included until they have made written commitments.
