When a student-athlete comes to the decision that he or she wants to transfer it is a very precise and difficult process that must be completed up to NCAA Transfer Terms. Each Division has a different timeline for when a student-athlete may or may not transfer.
Division 1 athletes have five years to play competitively with the use of a transfer while Division 2 and 3 schools student-athlete’s has 10 semesters or 15 quarters to complete four season of competition.
There are many exceptions when it comes to transferring, for example a student-athlete whom transfers from a four-year university may be eligible to compete at new desired school immediately if it falls under all the correct conditions; such as academic standards and must receive a transfer-release agreement from previous school.
