NCAA's decision will also extend the eligibility of all spring-sport student-athletes
(ESPN) – The NCAA Division I Council voted Monday to grant an extra year of eligibility to all student-athletes in spring sports whose seasons were canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The NCAA’s decision will also extend the eligibility of all spring-sport student-athletes — not just seniors whose careers would have ended after the cancellation of their seasons — and will allow schools to expand their rosters beyond current scholarship limits to account for incoming recruits and seniors who were expected to leave.
The NCAA will leave it up to each individual school to decide whether to grant seniors in spring sports less or equal financial aid this coming year than what that they received this year.
