If I'm a spring sport student-athlete, what happens to my eligibility since the spring season was cut short? – March 16
On March 13, the NCAA approved a blanket waiver for all student-athletes participating in spring sports to:
a). Waive the use of a season of participation for all student-athletes in spring sports; and
b). Waive the use of the spring semester towards the student-athletes limit of 10 semesters, regardless of if they used a season or not
So spring sport student-athletes will regain this year of eligibility.
