All NCAA DI & DII student-athletes who were on scholarship for the 2018-19 academic year should have been notified by July 1st of their scholarship status for the 2019-20 academic year.

If you were notified that your NCAA scholarship was not renewed or was reduced, you also should have been informed that you have a right to an appeal hearing.

In this case, the student-athlete must request a formal appeal hearing in writing typically within 2 weeks of receiving the notification.

An appeal hearing can be a scary prospect for a student-athlete often because of the unknown of what their rights are and what they should say.

We frequently help student-athletes prepare and present their best case to the appeal board by:

  • Talking about what will happen and what to expect during the hearing.
  • Coaching the student-athlete on what to say and not say during the hearing.
  • Reviewing their written appeal statements and discussing options they can consider.
  • Providing encouragement to boost their confidence for the hearing.
