It’s being reported that the NCAA Division I Council will vote soon on whether to move forward with a proposed One-Time Transfer Exception for ALL Division I student-athletes.

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: This action will not be a final vote but will introduce the rule change into the NCAA’s legislative cycle.

This new proposal includes a specific date by which an athlete will be required to notify their university that they intend to leave and play their sport at another school.

  • The drafted legislation has those dates as May 1 for student-athletes in fall and winter sports, and July 1 for spring sport athletes.

Although the timeline for the “final” vote is not certain, all signs point to a new rule taking effect for the 2021-22 academic year.
