Common Reasons a Student-Athlete considers a Transfer

DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS
The student-athlete has been cut from the team by the Coach for disciplinary reasons.

NOT A GOOD FIT
The student-athlete is not a good fit with the school, team, or coach.

FINANCIAL REASONS
The student-athlete’s family is experiencing financial roadblocks.

SCHOLARSHIP CUTS
The Coach cut scholarship money for the next year.

PLAYING TIME
The student-athlete is not getting enough playing time.

LOCATION
The student-athlete wants to be closer to home.

Some commonly encountered roadblocks to a transfer:

UNAWARE OF RIGHTS
The NCAA Division II student-athlete may not know about their right to appeal if the Coach refuses their transfer request.

LIMITED SELECTION
NCAA Division II Coaches might restrict the schools that a student-athlete can consider.

LOSS OF PRIVILEGES
Loss of access to work-out facilities, study halls, tutoring assistance, training table meals, etc.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE UPON TRANSFER NOTIFICATION OR REQUEST
The Coach immediately tells the student-athlete to clean out their locker and leave the team when they tell the coach they are thinking of transferring.

TRANSFER REFUSALS
NCAA Division II Coaches can refuse a transfer for their own reasons.

OTHER SCHOOLS SUSPECTED OF INTERFERING OR TAMPERING
Student-Athletes contact other schools before providing transfer notification to their current NCAA DI school, or obtaining permission from their current NCAA DII or DIII school and then their coach finds out and kicks them off the team.

ELIGIBILITY ISSUES
Student-Athletes who want to transfer can encounter eligibility issues which could create financial and other challenges.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“Rick was able to guide us through the issues involved of moving from a D1 to a Junior College and back to a D1 university to ensure NCAA rules were not violated and to give us good information on the various options available to our son. Through our experiences, we have come to learn to value Rick’s opinion and have realized that it is difficult, if not impossible, to try and interpret the many rules and regulations that govern NCAA athletes unless you have a helping hand.” Read More

- DAD OF A TRANSFER STUDENT

“I have been meaning to write this letter so many times. At times I just couldn’t find the words to express how much you helped change our daughter’s life! To this day it still brings tears to my eyes to think back at what her first coaching staff put her through but I am so thankful God led us to you! She wouldn’t be where she is at without all your help! I don’t know how to express how much we appreciate what you did for our daughter, but you were truly a Godsend! She is a much stronger (mentally and emotionally) person because of what she went through. Her new team and campus has been an amazing place for her. It truly has been a place of healing and happiness for her! THANK YOU and I hope you know we will never forget you!”  Read More
