COLLEGES

TRANSFER RULE: NCAA athletes will be immediately eligible to play no matter how many times they transfer – as long as they meet academic requirements – after the association fast-tracked legislation to fall in line with a recent court order.

Transfer windows, which are sport-specific, remain in place and require undergraduate athletes to enter their names into the portal at certain times to be immediately eligible at a new school. Graduate students can already transfer multiple times and enter the portal outside the windows while maintaining immediate eligibility.
