NCAA DI Council announces recommended windows for entering transfer portal
Student-athletes may soon be limited to when they can enter their names into the NCAA transfer portal. The NCAA DI Council announced Wednesday that it is recommending transfer portal windows for student-athletes.
The Council recommends windows for winter & spring sports and fall sports. The windows would be for players to enter the NCAA transfer portal. Players would be able to transfer to their new school outside the entry windows.
For fall sports, including college football, there would be 2 separate windows. The first window would be 45 days beginning the day following championship selection, and the second would be from May 1 to May 15. If adopted for the upcoming 2022-23 NCAA season, the first window would be Dec. 5 to Jan. 18 (H/T Max Olson).
For winter and spring sports, students would be able to provide written notification of entry into the transfer portal for 60 days, starting the day after NCAA championship selections.
With the windows, players would no longer be limited to transferring once, per the Council’s statement.
The DI Board of Directors will vote on these recommendations next month.
The Division I Council has endorsed several recommendations intended to better support student-athletes, improve efficiency and timeliness with infractions process, and improve clarity for transfers. https://t.co/TspSNdmyCw
