Transfer Waiver Tracker in D-I Women’s Basketball for 2020-21 Season

List of D-I women’s basketball players who transferred during or following the 2019-20 season and then received an NCAA transfer waiver to play immediately at their new school (arranged alphabetically by new school, with previous school in parentheses; last updated: December 16, 2020). Not included are the 95 or so immediately eligible graduate transfers for the 2020-21 season.

A list of waivers denied follows the ones granted. Note, however, that not all denials are publicized, so it should not be viewed as a complete list.

NOTE: On December 16, 2020, the NCAA granted a blanket waiver to all D-I to D-I transfers for the 2020-21 season, provided they meet certain conditions:

The Division I Council granted a blanket waiver allowing all transfer student-athletes to compete immediately this season if specific criteria are met.

In order to be eligible for the waiver, the transfer student-athletes must meet the following conditions:

  • They must be enrolled full time at the school for the fall 2020 term.
  • It must be the first transfer from a four-year school.
  • The student-athlete must have left their previous school in good standing academically and not facing disciplinary suspension.
  • Both the head coach and the student-athlete must certify that impermissible recruiting did not take place.

The waiver applies only to students who transferred from another Division I school, not transfers from other NCAA divisions or schools outside the NCAA. The regular transfer waiver process is available to non-Division I transfer student-athletes.
