Northeast Conference Eliminates Intra-Conference Transfer Policy

5/7/2021


Somerset, NJ -- The Northeast Conference Council of Presidents voted to eliminate the league's intra-conference transfer policy in the sports of men's and women's basketball and football. The decision was made by the Council after being supported unanimously by the league's Athletic Directors and Senior Woman Administrators. 

With the NCAA’s recent adoption of more flexible transfer legislation, the change will align the NEC with the NCAA's one-time transfer exception across all sports. 

Previously, NEC undergraduate student-athletes in the sports of men’s basketball, women’s basketball and football who transferred between NEC institutions were required to fulfill a residency requirement of one academic year at the second NEC institution and would lose a season of competition during the fulfillment of the residency requirement.
