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.

If a college athlete plays a sport for a community college does this count toward NCAA eligibility?

If it is a Junior College (JuCo) and part of the NJCAA, then yes, but the two years you play at a Juco I believe only counts for one year on the NCAA level granted a NCAA school wants you to play for them.


Can a college player play baseball after graduation for a different college?

Well there are a couple of answers to this question.First, a player can play for a different college after graduation from one college if that college was a junior college or community college. So, if a player attends a junior college and graduates from that college with an associates degree then that person would have the opportunity to play college baseball at a four year institution. However, whenever a person first begins college their "clock" begins. This means that an student or student athlete when they first enroll into college would have 5 years in order to compete in four of them. This allows time for a redshirt. So when a junior college student transfers to another college they will generally have 3 years to compete in 2 season. Sometimes that may differ based on the circumstances of the individual athlete.Second, as stated earlier a student when the first step onto a college campus (whether they are an athlete or not) has five years to compete in 4 season. Therefore, if an athlete graduated from a different and competed in a different sport and only played four years in that other sport, they can then play their fifth year, in a different sport at a different college. However, the athlete can only compete in one seasons of competition. The perfect example of this would be Greg Paulus. he played four years of college basketball at Duke and then graduated from Duke and played one year of college football at Syracuse. Again, because of his clock he was only able to participate in one season. However, the big key to this is that the player must be enrolled into classes at said college. Therefore the student athlete must be either going to graduate school or obtain another degree.Finally, a person could play for a different college after graduation from one college if they transfer. This means that if a player was playing a sport at one college and graduated early (for instance 3 years) they could transfer to a different college and compete as long as they are going to graduate school or obtaining another degree. However, due to NCAA transfer rules that athlete must sit out one year of competition. This means that they can practice and workout with the team, but the cannot compete in games. Therefore they can transfer, sit out a year and attend graduate school and redshirt, then the next season they could compete in competition.

Is it possible be a radiologist if you go to a community college and take Medical Radiologic Technology and transfer to a 4 year college?

It's important to see a transfer counselor at the community college, to ensure the you are in a transfer program to a four year institution. Also ask if the community college has any transfer articulations with four year colleges and universities for that specific program where they offer a full faith in credit transfer. It is my suspicion that you are not going to get all the prerequisites you will need at the community college level is indeed you are pursuing a doctorate.

What happens to drafted baseball players who decide to attend college?

If they don't sign with the team that drafted them, or otherwise violate their amateur status, they can attend college and play baseball for the college team, then go back into the undrafted player pool the following year. They can also sign with the team that drafted them, play for that team and attend college in the off-season, but they are not eligible to play baseball for their college team, but may play another sport in college such as basketball or football.
