AD’s TIP OF THE WEEK
Transfer Students and Sub-Varsity Eligibility. In cases of student transfer from school to school, where the student-athlete will participate only at the sub-varsity level, the receiving school Athletic Director does not have to file a petition with the NMAA. The Athletic Director does, however need to obtain a Form C from the sending school in order to determine the “good standing” of the student from the previous school. If the Form C reveals that a fine is due the previous school, or that the student left the previous school under a suspension or has a disciplinary history then the receiving schools is responsible for insuring that the fine/fee is paid and the disciplinary suspension from the previous school is upheld. In the event the Form C reveals a suspicion of recruitment by the receiving school the matter must be brought to the attention of the NMAA. For questions please contact Scott Owen, Assistant Director 505-923-3273.
