The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Monday the elimination of the league’s intraconference transfer rule.
The decision was made by the league’s Board of Directors and was done so unanimously.
The ACC’s intraconference transfer rule was created by the membership in 1996 (excerpt of ACC Bylaws included below).
“The time has come for all student-athletes to have the opportunity to transfer and be permitted to compete immediately,” said ACC Commissioner Jim Phillips. “This decision is in the best interest of our student-athletes as it allows greater flexibility during their collegiate career.”
