NCAA Eliminates Hardship Waivers For Transfers

The NCAA approved a proposal on Thursday that says athletes who transfer can no longer be eligible to play immediately, even if they’re transferring for hardship purposes. It had been a growing trend in college athletics recently that players who were unhappy could transfer to a school closer to home, usually citing wishes to be closer to a sick family member. In these cases, the athletes could file a waiver with the NCAA that, if approved, would allow them to play the next season instead of sitting out the year required of transfers.
