College Athletes: Do you qualify for a Medical Hardship Waiver?

If you’re a college athlete who was injured during your Fall season, you may want to consider whether you qualify for a Medical Hardship Waiver.

If you did not compete at all during this season, it can be considered as a “redshirt” season for you, and even if you were injured, your athletic department may tell you that a Medical Hardship Waiver isn’t necessary since you didn’t use one of your 4 seasons of eligibility anyway.

However, if we look ahead and consider the possibility that you might become injured again and miss another season, then 2 seasons with a Medical Hardship Waiver could gain you an extra year of playing eligibility.

In a private, confidential consult, we can discuss the guidelines for obtaining a waiver for Extension of Eligibility and help you to prepare for that possible option. Click here to schedule a confidential consult online, call 913-766-1235 or send an email to
