The NCAA has approved (with a unamimous vote) to give an extra year of eligibility for spring athletes. The NCAA’s decision will extend the elgibility of all spring sport student athletes, not just seniors who would have graduated after this season. They will allow schools to expand their rostrs beyond current scholarship limits to account for incoming recruits and seniors who would’ve graduated. The waivers will be applied to spring sports athletes only (people who are playing baseball, softball, tennis, golf, outdoor track and field, lacrosse, rowing, men’s volleyball, beach volleyball, and water polo). The waiver will not be allowed to be given to winter sports athletes like those in basketball, hockey, swimming and diving, and gymnastics.
