NCAA Letter Of Intent - Frequently Asked Questions

October 30, 2017

 

Question: When I sign a National Letter of Intent what do I agree to do?

Answer: When you sign the National Letter of Intent you agree to attend the institution with which you signed for one academic year in exchange for the institution awarding financial aid, including athletics aid, for one academic year.

 

Question: By signing a National Letter of Intent am I guaranteed that I will play on the squad?

Answer: No. Signing a National Letter of Intent does not guarantee you playing time or a spot on the team. Rather, by signing a National Letter of Intent, the institution with which you sign agrees to provide you athletics financial aid for the academic year.

 

Question: How do I satisfy the National Letter of Intent?

Answer: You can satisfy the National Letter of Intent one of two ways. You satisfy the National Letter of Intent by attending the institution with which you sign for at least one academic year or by graduating from a junior college if you signed a National Letter of Intent while in high school or during your first year at the junior college.

 

Question: Is a National Letter of Intent binding if the coach that signed me leaves the institution to take another position?

Answer: Yes. The National Letter of Intent you signed with an institution is valid if the coach that recruited you leaves the institution with which you signed. When you sign a National Letter of Intent you sign with an institution and not with a coach or a specific team.

 

Question: If I complete the playing season at the institution with which I sign, have I satisfied the National Letter of Intent?

Answer: No. Completing a playing season alone does not satisfy the National Letter of Intent. You must complete the academic year in residence.

Answer: Generally, only prospective student-athletes who are enrolling in a four-year institution for the first time sign a National Letter of Intent. Student-athletes who start their academic career at a four-year institution and then transfer to a junior college may also sign a National Letter of Intent if they plan on entering a second four-year
