Dear Eligibility Coach:
I graduated from high school in 2009 and enrolled in a four year college, but did not make the team in my sport. After two years, I transferred to another four-year college. In my second year there I tried out and made the team. The compliance officer says that I only have one year to compete. How can that be since I haven’t competed at all since I enrolled in college?
The NCAA provides a five-year window of time referred to as the “five-year clock” for each student-athlete to use four years to compete in his sport. In Division I, the five-year clock starts the first semester of full-time collegiate enrollment, regardless of whether or

It appears that you have been enrolled in college continuously for four
years and have used four years on the NCAA Division I clock, and used eight semesters of the ten allowed in Division II. Go back to the compliance officer and ask him to show you each year of your clock and how it was used so that you can fully understand your situation.
