ALL TRANSFERS:
Prior to contacting any member of our athletic department, ALL transfers must have a written release from the athletic department at your current institution, giving us permission to speak with you regarding your transfer. 

If you are a current Philadelphia University student-athlete contemplating transferring to another institution, please contact your coach prior to requesting a release from the athletic department.
