Cancellation or modification of an athletic scholarship during the period of its effectiveness is allowed for the following reasons only:
- If the athlete becomes ineligible for participation in athletics because of academic and/or disciplinary reasons.
- For misconduct (unrelated to athletic ability) found by the person or body in charge of general discipline at the institution.
- If the student-athlete voluntarily withdraws from a sport prior to the institution’s first competition in that sport.
Colleges may also include attachments to the NJCAA Letter of Intent which stipulates conditions for the cancellation of an athletic scholarship that are more stringent than those listed above.
