Revised October 2016 with updated NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA rules! Now includes specific official visit rules for NCAA DI, DII and DIII, Junior College and NAIA.
Over the past several years of advising student-athletes and their parents, we have learned that most do not adequately prepare for their campus visits and make decisions that they later come to regret.
Once an athlete joins an athletic team at a four-year college, they must have “permission to contact” before a coach at another NCAA school can talk with them or their parents about a possible transfer.
At Informed Athlete, we believe that if athletes and parents were better prepared for visiting campuses and choosing a school, there might not be as many transfer situations.
In this comprehensive guide, you’ll learn the differences between official and unofficial visits and the NCAA rules that govern both. You’ll also learn insider secrets about what to look for with regard to the coaching staff, facilities, academics, campus, and teammates. AND, you’ll receive a list of questions that you should ask while you’re on campus.
