Report: NCAA Board of Directors Approves Transfer Windows

The Portal Report breaks down all NCAA transfer portal news and notes, including transfer windows.

According to a report by Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger, the NCAA Board of Directors approved the transfer window concept proposed by the D1 Council over a month ago.

The following excerpt comes from a release by the NCAA after the D1 Council proposed said windows.

“For winter and spring sports, students could provide written notification of transfer the day after NCAA championship selections in that sport for 60 calendar days. In fall sports, two separate windows would provide a total of 60 calendar days. The first window would be 45 days beginning the day following championship selection and the second would be from May 1 to May 15. Reasonable accommodations will be made for participants in the Football Bowl Subdivision and Football Championship Subdivision championship games.”

Student Athletes would have to enter the portal in those above time windows. However, the athletes do not have to commit to, or choose a new program during that time period.

The report by Dellenger also includes that the NCAA did not approve the unlimited transfer concept, which took the college athletics world by storm when it was initially proposed.

George Michalowski co-founded The Portal Report in 2022 with the goal of creating a media outlet completely focused on the transfer portal recruiting scene. In addition to his role with The Portal Report, Michalowski now works for Pittsburgh Sports Now as the site’s Pitt basketball beat writer and PrepHoops as a Pennsylvania high school basketball scout.
