Rules and Regulations


Intra Conference Transfer Policy Student-athletes in the sports of mens basketball, womens basketball and football, are not permitted to transfer (directly or indirectly) from one BIG EAST institution to another BIG EAST institution and participate in any capacity in the sports of mens basketball, womens basketball or football. However, these student-athletes may transfer (directly or indirectly) from one BIG EAST institution to another BIG EAST institution and may participate in sports other than mens basketball, womens basketball or football pursuant to the transfer parameters in the next clause. There are no exceptions or waivers to this rule. Student-athletes in all other sports may transfer (directly or indirectly) from one BIG EAST institution to another BIG EAST institution and participate in any sport other than mens basketball, womens basketball or football, provided that prior to competing for the second Conference institution the student-athlete serves a year in residency at the second Conference institution. During the year in residency [two full semesters or three full quarters (which shall be determined in accordance with NCAA rules associated with transfers)] the student-athlete shall not lose a year of eligibility, and shall be eligible to practice and receive athletically related financial aid. There are no exceptions or waivers to this rule. Special Notes 1. A student-athlete who signs a valid National Letter of Intent with a BIG EAST institution is subject to the above-mentioned transfer policy for the sport in which they signed the NLI. 2. A student-athlete who signs a valid National Letter of Intent with a BIG EAST institution, and is subsequently granted a complete release to said NLI or is granted a release by the NLI Steering Committee, is subject to the above-mentioned transfer policy for the sport in which they signed the NLI. 3. A student-athlete who signs a valid National Letter of Intent with a BIG EAST institution that is subsequently declared null and void (as set forth in Section 7 of the NLI), is not subject to the abovementioned transfer policy as long as said student-athlete did not trigger transfer status (as defined by NCAA bylaws) prior to the NLI being declared null and void. 4. As noted in each section, the above-mentioned policy is applicable to all student-athletes who have ever enrolled full-time at a BIG EAST institution (e.g., four-two-four transfers, four-four-four transfers). 5. If a student-athlete is granted an SLR waiver by the NCAA in conjunction with a procedural issue associated with a transfer scenario (e.g., failure to provide a timely appeal hearing), the SLR waiver would override the BIG EAST policy. 6. Institutions are not permitted to enter into separate arrangements that would in any way alter the terms and conditions of the above-stated policy (e.g., allowing a student-athlete to transfer but to not compete against the institution that they transferred from). 7. In all sports, a student that was not recruited, has never received athletically related financial aid and was never a student-athlete (per NCAA definition), is not subject to the terms and conditions of the above-stated policy. 8. In all sports except football and mens and womens basketball, non-recruited student-athletes that never received athletically related financial aid are not subject to terms and conditions of the abovestated policy. 9. The BIG EAST Conference intra-conference transfer policy does not apply to: a. Student-athletes who participate in sports in which the BIG EAST Conference does not designate a champion or sponsor a championship (e.g., mens and womens ice hockey, mens and womens rifle, mens and womens fencing or womens gymnastics). b. Student-athletes who compete in sports in which the Conference does sponsor a championship, but which a member institution does not participate as a member of the

Conference for that sport (e.g., the institution has been granted permission by the Conference for the sport to be federated). 10. This policy is effective as of October 31, 2005 and is not retroactive. Minimum Qualifying Standards Policy A recruited or non-recruited student-athlete who does not achieve the NCAA academic minimum qualifying standards (non-qualifier) for athletic competition upon initial full-time enrollment at a BIG EAST Conference member institution shall not be permitted to compete in athletics at a BIG EAST Conference member institution. In order for a non-qualifier out of high school to be eligible to transfer to a BIG EAST Conference institution from a two-year junior college, he or she must first graduate with an associates degree and meet all NCAA and member institutions minimal eligibility regulations. If these standards are met, the student-athlete shall then be eligible for financial aid, practice and athletic competition at a BIG EAST Conference member institution. In order for a non-qualifier out of high school to be eligible to transfer to a BIG EAST Conference institution from a non-BIG EAST Conference four-year institution(s), he or she must have completed a year of residency at the non-BIG EAST Conference institution(s) and meet all NCAA and member institutions minimal eligibility regulations. If these standards are met, the studentathlete shall then be eligible for financial aid, practice and athletic competition at a BIG EAST Conference member institution. In order for a non-qualifier out of high school to be eligible to transfer to a BIG EAST Conference institution, a student athlete initially enrolled at a non-BIG EAST Conference four-year institution who later transferred to a two-year institution can become eligible for enrollment at a member school provided he or she meets all NCAA and member institutions minimal eligibility regulations. If these standards are met, the student-athlete shall be then eligible for financial aid, practice and athletic competition at a BIG EAST Conference member institution. It is also hereby understood that the NCAA Division I Initial-Eligibility Waivers Committee is empowered to declare student-athletes eligible for competition, practice and/or financial aid who otherwise by definition do not meet NCAA minimum academic qualifying standards. In such cases, these students shall be permitted to enroll at BIG EAST Conference member institutions. A student that achieves the NCAA academic minimum qualifying standards after they have graduated from high school but prior to initial full-time enrollment (i.e., attends a prep school, attends a community college part time, retakes a standardized test to achieve a better score) would be permitted to initially enroll at a BIG EAST Conference member institution and participate in athletics. The BIG EAST Conference minimum qualifying standards policy does not apply to: o Student-athletes who participate in sports in which the BIG EAST Conference does not designate a champion or sponsor a championship (e.g., mens and womens ice hockey, mens and womens rifle, mens and womens fencing or womens gymnastics). o Student-athletes who compete in sports in which the Conference does sponsor a championship, but which a member institution does not participate as a member of the Conference for that sport (e.g., the institution has been granted permission by the Conference for the sport to be federated).
