  • WAIVERS & APPEALS

Find out if you qualify for an NCAA waiver or appeal
so you can continue to play your sport.

Sometimes, a student-athlete’s circumstances call for a waiver of the NCAA rules. An appeal may be called for in the case where an athlete is refused a transfer, or their scholarship is cancelled.

Common Waiver & Appeal Issues

Reasons a Student-Athlete would request a Waiver or Appeal:

A STUDENT-ATHLETE HAS BEEN INJURED in competition, hurt in an accident or had an illness that affects their ability to compete.

A COACH OR ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT HAS CANCELLED a student-athlete’s scholarship for “violating team rules.”

A STUDENT-ATHLETE HAS EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES including illness or death of a family member, causing them to take a break from competition.

A STUDENT-ATHLETE IS DENIED eligibility and there are extenuating circumstances.

A COACH OR ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT DENY an athlete’s request for “permission to contact” other schools, place unacceptable restrictions on such a request, or refuse to grant an athlete their “One-Time Transfer Exception.”

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

“My Son, Will James, was a starter on the South Dakota State Wrestling team when he suffered a season ending knee injury in the first match of his Senior season. Will had also lost a year to a shoulder injury during his Sophomore season in the first match of the year.

We contacted Rick Allen at informedAthlete.com and Rick immediately gave us a recommendation that Will should be eligible for a Medical waiver. Rick asked for all documentation related to the injuries and put together a presentation for the NCAA committee.
We were thrilled when Will was awarded an additional year of wrestling after graduation from South Dakota State University.”  Read More
