Student-athletes no longer need permission from schools to transfer

The Division I Board of Directors developed a series of principles to guide the Transfer Working group, which included that any rule changes should "support the academic success of student-athletes", and "be based on data and create the least restrictive environment possible for student-athletes".

The new NCAA rule does not change the injury redshirt process.

The previous transfer rule, which required student-athletes to get permission from their current school to contact another school before they can receive a scholarship after transfer, was meant to discourage coaches from recruiting student-athletes from other Division I schools. Instead, the NCAA is creating a database in which schools must input a transfer candidate's information within two business days of that player filing their transfer paperwork. "Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries", Miami AD Blake James said. It takes effect October 15. Schools would often block permission to conference opponents, rivals or programs that recruited prospects out of high school, which would often force student-athletes to transfer down to junior college before landing at their school of choice. Four games, to be exact. Conferences, however, can still put rules in play that forbid student-athletes from transferring within the conference without sitting out a year or some other stipulation. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition". "The new exception allows football players to preserve a season of competition if, for example, injuries or other factors result in them competing in a small number of games".

Just five minutes after that, Pichl said the driver "pulled the cab over and said: 'You should not do that... do not do that'". Meanwhile, Iovine and Pichl say the incident has changed their perspective on being in a same-sex couple in New York City.

It removes the upper hand that schools have long held over student-athletes looking to transfer.

That's one way the model could work, but there is no limitation, meaning that a player could be used in game one, then game eight, and then the Big Ten title game, and then the College Football Playoff and still count the year as a redshirt. Currently, a student's notification of intent to transfer at the end of a term is not a listed reason a school can use to cancel aid.

More changes could be on the wayAnother financial aid element, autonomy legislation that governs when a school can reduce or cancel aid, may be adjusted next week by the autonomy conferences.
