Transfer general portal information
The NCAA Transfer Portal, which covers all NCAA sports at the Division I, II and III levels, is a private database containing the names of student-athletes who wish to transfer. It is not accessible to the public.
The process of accessing the portal is done through a school’s compliance office. Once a player provides written notification of their intent to transfer, the office enters the player’s name into the database and everything is up and running. The Compliance Office has 48 hours to respond to the player’s request and this request cannot be refused.
Once a player’s name appears on the portal, other schools can contact the player. Players can change their mind at any time and withdraw from the portal. However, once a player enters the portal, the current purse no longer needs to be honored. In other words, if a player enters the portal but decides to stay, the school is no longer obligated to provide a scholarship.
The database is a normal database, sortable by a variety of topics, including (of course) sport and name. A player’s individual registration includes basic details such as contact information, whether the player was on scholarship and whether he was transferring as a graduate student.
A player may request that a “Do Not Contact” label be placed on the report. In these cases, players do not wish to be contacted by schools unless they have initiated the communication.
The portal has existed since October 15, 2018 and the new calendar cycle within the portal begins every August. For example, the 2021-22 cycle started on August 1. During the 2020-21 cycle, 2,626 FBS football players entered the transfer portal (including walk-on players). This comes after 1,681 enrolled during the 2019-20 cycle and 1,709 during the abbreviated 2018-19 cycle. By comparison, 1,833 Division I basketball players entered the portal during the 2020-21 cycle, following a total of 1,020 in 2019-20 and 1,063 in 2018-19.
