Change to college sports’ current transfer environment will take a bit longer to arrive after the Division I Board of Directors opted against approving a transfer reform package recommended by the D-I Transformation Committee and sent it back for “additional work” on Wednesday, delaying the implementation of transfer windows and other reforms.

The current one-time transfer rule will remain in place for the time being, as the board also opted against voting to eliminate the one-time transfer rule. Removing the rule would have allowed for what is being colloquially referred to as “unlimited transfers,” meaning athletes could move freely between schools with immediate eligibility assuming they are academically eligible and announce their intention to transfer during a certain time of the year.
