Glad you brought up the student athlete aspect...there's no restrictions on the ability of other students to transfer, why should these students have their freedom restricted because they play sports?

Because they have a lot of money and resources invested in compared to that of other students


I also think it is ironic that you say there are "no restrictions" on other students, when Tulane specifically fiddles with course registration terminology to make it more difficult for students to transfer credits away from Tulane (because we have a retention problem compared to peer institutions). Tulane is famous for this in academic circles. It also creates the unintentional consequence of making it more difficult to transfer in (which is a problem that, in turn, negatively impacts athletics from time to time much to people's chagrin on here)

It costs money to have D1 athletics. Shrug.

If Tulane is famous for this in academic circles, then I take it this is not a normal practice? Also, we clearly have students transfer in/out all the time, so how much of a barrier is it? Does the money we make from denying incoming credits make up for the money we "invested" per your first point?
