Transfer Eligibility

The most efficient method of communication with the CIF on eligibility questions is through the student-athlete’s athletic director or principal. Parents/guardians/caregivers calling the CIF on eligibility matters can create unnecessary delay. Coaches and parents must work with their school's ADs or principals to help determine a student-athlete’s eligibility.

All transfer students must submit transfer eligibility paperwork and be approved by the Section office BEFORE competing. No paperwork is required for incoming freshmen.
