If your school moves up a division, no, the players do not sit for a year. The school is placed on a one-year probation period, after which they are full members of Division I.

If, however, a player transfers schools, the NCAA requires that the player sits for a period of one year before being added to the active roster. This is regardless of divisions, teams, conferences, etc.

The NCAA rule requiring a player to sit out one year for transferring only applies when a player transfers UP a division or laterally to Division I-A. For example, going from I-A to I-AA would not require sitting out. Going from I-A to I-A would. Going from D3 to D3 does not. You should inquire with your school's compliance officer and talk to your current coach and prospective coach to verify.
