Transfer student reminder

The CEDA constitution places an affirmative obligation on Directors to inform the Executive Secretary of any transfer students.

In addition, the transfer student does not count for CEDA points unless there is a written release from the prior Director indicating (1) no recruiting violations occurred, (2) the transfer is in the best interest of the student, and (3) CEDA points should count immediately upon transfer.

Send the information directly to me at: jeffrey.jarman@wichita.edu.

Thanks.

Jeff
