    There is one aspect in relation to other associations that needs to be answered from my perspective. I am unsure how each NAIA institution handles this situation currently or the National Office.

    NCAA Division III does not allow redshirting. Practicing is considered a season of competition regardless of intercollegiate competition at the JV or Varsity level. In the case of a D3 transfer who practiced but did not participate in intercollegiate competition does the NAIA charge a season of competition? If so, this is the one exception to following another associations policies the NAIA should consider.

  7. Don says:

    I agree with the current rule but believe we should have an exception for a D III transfer.

  8. Rob Ramseyer says:

    I agree with keeping it as is.
