Last Fall, NCAA Division I changed their transfer procedures. A DI student-athlete previously had to ask for “permission to transfer” before they were allowed to contact other colleges.
Now, student-athletes can file a written “Intent to Transfer” request. After an “Intent to Transfer” request is submitted, the school is required to enter their name and contact info in the NCAA Transfer Portal within 2 business days. Other DI schools can then review and contact the student-athlete.
Many student-athletes are eager to voice their plans to transfer earlier than they otherwise would have in the past. However, some athletes are experiencing difficulties once they file an intent to transfer notification. In many cases, they are barred from the locker room and can no longer use the athletic facilities.
Most transfers are stressful and made even worse if not navigated properly. If you or your athlete is considering a transfer to another school, we can advise, guide, and support you through the process.
