Once approved, the service will be identified on the list of approved scouting services that can be accessed with the following URL: http://web1.ncaa.org/scouting/school_search. An ncaa.org account is required in order to access the list.
During the months of April and May while the current applications are being processed, both the applications approved in 2012-13 AND the 2013-14 academic years will be visible. Last year's list will be at the top of the page and the current year will be at the bottom of the page; so you must scroll down.
Take caution to make sure that you are looking at the correct academic year when determining if the service has been approved for this year before making a purchase. Some services may be listed twice. For example:
On June 1, the services from the previous academic year will disappear and only the current year will be included. If a scouting service's application is approved, the approval will be valid from June 1 of this year until May 31 the following year.
