Daughter Red-Shirted, Miserable
My daughter transferred this year, as a junior, from a community college to a D1 2000 miles away, on a softball scholarship. She found out, after two weeks of school, that she is "academically ineligible" to participate, however, and must red-shirt this year, because her GPA at the JUCO ended up being 2.48, and not the required 2.5. She is miserable there, and it has gotten much worse with this recent development. She had other substantial offers, and took this one because it offered the most, but had she known she would have to red-shirt, she never would have taken it. It is my understanding that she HAS to stay there, at least for one year, or else be liable for the scholarship amount, and that, most likely if she leaves, she will not be able to play anywhere else, at least for a year. Can she, however, transfer after a year, as a senior, to a local college, and give up softball? Is this possible? Is it ethical? What, if any, are the ramifications?4 replies
