That depends.

The final decision to transfer must be made by an athlete and family based on a number of factors. But we can help you to consider the pros and cons of a possible transfer by having a confidential discussion of the factors to consider.

Such factors/questions include:

  • Do the rules applying to your sport and situation give you the opportunity to be eligible next year with a new team? (Baseball, basketball, football, and men’s ice hockey can be more difficult.)
  • How many seasons of eligibility do you have remaining?
  • Will you satisfy the academic requirements to be eligible as a transferring student-athlete?
  • Are you transferring to another four-year college, or to a junior college to be re-recruited to another four-year college?

Do you need assistance?

If you want to discuss your specific situation as it relates to these questions and the options your student-athlete can consider, schedule a confidential transfer consultation online or by calling us at 913-766-1235 or sending an email to rick@informedathlete.com

If you’re a student-athlete considering a transfer to another school, it’s very important that you be informed BEFORE you take action!

This is obviously a stressful time for many college student-athletes as they consider whether to return to their current team for another year with an additional year of eligibility.

  • At the same time, many are wondering if their scholarship will be renewed for next year, or if there might be a better opportunity elsewhere.
  • Added to this is the potential logjam of rosters with new incoming recruits being added to rosters for next year.

If you are considering a transfer to another university, the last thing you should do is notify your current coach of that possibility without being informed about all you need to know regarding a transfer.
