*Effective August 2008The Metro Athletic Conference will not grant a transfer waiver or release agreement to a fellow Metro Athletic Conference school for the following year. This applies ONLY to student-athletes who have signed a National Letter of Intent and/or are on the submitted eligibility roster. The Metro Athletic Conference holds the same policy as the NJCAA. A student-athlete will not need a transfer waiver if one of the following provisions apply:
Probation Period A student-athlete who has attended an NJCAA member college as a full-time student and/or participated and who transfers from that college to another NJCAA member college may not participate for one (1) season. The season is interpreted as the season immediately following his/her last term of full-time enrollment.
Appeal ProcessThe appeal is submitted to a neutral committee comprised of the Commissioner of the MAC council (serves as the chair) and all Athletic Directors from non-involved schools. The student-athlete must fill out an appeal form and should submit the form and all college transcripts to the MAC District Director by December 24th or June 30th. You may obtain an appeal form at http://www.dcccd.edu/MAC under “forms”. In addition, the coaches and Athletic Directors involved may submit a written statement to the committee. All documents will be received and date stamped by the MAC District Director and forward to the MAC Commissioner. Every Athletic Director will receive notification that an appeal has been submitted. The committee will meet every January and July. A letter of explanation will be mailed to the student-athlete as notification within 45 days of the submission deadline. If the student-athlete is not satisfied with the committee’s decision the final level of appeal will be with the Commissioner’s supervisor. All paperwork from the committee will be forwarded to this person immediately, if necessary.
