NCAA DI Council Passes New Transfer Rules

Andy Berg Headshot

The NCAA’s DI Council has ruled that student-athletes in some specific situations can now transfer and compete immediately without a waiver.

According to a report on the NCAA’s website, incoming freshman college athletes who have enrolled in summer school and received athletics financial aid can transfer and play immediately without a waiver if their head coach departs before the first day of classes for the fall term. Additionally, walk-on student-athletes on teams that provide athletics aid and non-recruited walk-ons can transfer and play immediately without a waiver.

Those rules are effective for students who transfer to new schools this fall.
