Based on some phone calls we’ve received and some postings we’ve seen on social media, it seems that some college athletes and parents now believe that the transfer process is “automatic.”

When the new NCAA Transfer Portal took effect back in mid-October, it changed ONLY the process that an athlete must follow to contact other universities regarding a transfer. And, it only changed the process for NCAA Division I athletes.

What Didn’t Change:

  • The NCAA Division II and III rules for obtaining “permission to contact” other college coaches didn’t change,
  • The NCAA Division I, II and III rules and academic requirements regarding whether an athlete can be immediately eligible as a transfer athlete didn’t change.
