According to a release from the NCAA, the Division One council met on Wednesday to discuss previously proposed changes to transfer rules.
The release began with a statement on a new proposal called the academic eligibility exemption, which “would allow undergraduate student-athletes to transfer and be immediately eligible if they leave their previous school academically eligible and in good standing and will be academically eligible at the new school prior to competition.”
Another of the important takeaways from the release is the stance the Council gave on the proposal of transfer windows.
“The Council continued to support the transfer window concept and agreed with the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee that a fall notification-of-transfer window for spring student-athletes would be appropriate. Members also supported the continuation of current restrictions preventing competing for two schools in one year, also supported by SAAC members. The Council committed to reviewing the timing and duration of transfer windows in the future.”
The NCAA is putting most of these potential rule changes on hold, including the unlimited transfer rules which was previously proposed.
“The Council acknowledged that unless transfer rules change, the waiver process that has dissatisfied members will continue.”
The Division One board will meet on August 31 to potentially approve these changes.
