This is the Brundidge 5th eligibility fax debacle all over again! Maybe it's our fax machine?!

http://www.athleticscholarships.net/ncaa-transfer-exceptions.htm

"Graduate Transfer Waiver

The graduate transfer waiver is now typically used by athletes who have previous transferred once before and so cannot use the one-time transfer exception (even as a graduate student).

A letter from the previous school saying it does not object to the student-athlete being eligible;

Documentation that the student-athlete has been accepted into a specific graduate degree program;

Documentation about whether that degree program is offered by the previous school;

A student-athlete statement including the reasons for the transfer; and

A statement from the previous institution about the student-athlete’s status on the team.

Generally the heart of the waiver is the three middle bullets. The NCAA wants to see that the student-athlete transferred in order to continue his or her academic career by pursuing a graduate degree not offered at the previous school."

From BA's comments on the radio show, it seems that we submitted the request and documentation for the waiver a long time ago, but that no response from the NCAA has been received yet.

I asked BA earlier this year what Prince was going to major in at Detroit Mercy, and I recall that he said business. I’m more than certain Long Beach State has an MBA program, but they may not offer some of the specializations UDM offers, e.g., decision sciences or business turnaround management. Perhaps it may come down to the NCAA making a determination as to whether Prince’s academic program in Detroit is a sufficient enough variation from what he had available to choose from at LBSU.

According to the Long Beach website, the graduate MBA program offers three specific areas for a masters degree: 1) Accounting, 2) Information Systems, and 3) Supply Chain Management.

No. I think it is the slow turnaround time by the NCAA.

Maybe he's enrolled in that Management program that's ranked top 10 that Mik is always posting about?
