Athletic Scholarships and Financial Aid agreements are NOT
one-size fits all and they are not guaranteed.

Every day we get questions via email and phone calls asking about athletic scholarships. It’s obvious that there’s a lot of confusion about scholarships in general and the rules surrounding athletic scholarships and financial aid.

Common Misconceptions About Athletic Scholarships

Some of the most common misconceptions about athletic scholarships are:

TRANSFERABILITY
Some people think that an athletic scholarship can transfer with them to another university; however, an athletic scholarship is ONLY valid at the school that awarded it.

COACH PROMISES
Verbal promises by a coach are not always honored and are not legally binding.

NATIONAL LETTER OF INTENT RULES
Many people think that the National Letter of Intent IS the same as the athletic scholarship agreement when in fact, they are two separate documents.

SCHOLARSHIP TERMS
Not all athletic scholarships are created equal…and not all scholarships are for all 4 years, or are considered full scholarships.

THE FINAL WORD
Rules about athletic scholarships are the same at all college levels.  This is a common point of confusion.  In fact, the rules about athletic scholarships differ between junior college, NAIA, and even within the NCAA divisions.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Thanks for informing us about the limitations on when a coach or athletic department can reduce or cancel a scholarship.  The coach had implied that he may be reducing or taking away our daughter’s scholarship and understanding the rules was very helpful when our daughter had her season-ending meeting with the coach.Read More
