Question for Lar


#1

There is currenlty a softball player for Penn State Harrisburg that just hit safely for an amazing 17 straight plate appearances. (not games but hits in a row). Which got me thinking if she were wanted and of the mind to transfer to main campus would she have to sit out a year? Or is it a regular transfer because Harrisburg is a 4 year school or doesn’t that matter one way or the other.

No matter what quite a run…go Ms Boyd

I’m not Lar but I don’t believe the Satellite Campus to Main Campus would require a year sit since the Satellite Campus is actually a JUCO.

First of all, PSU-Hburg is a D3 program. Only transfers from D1 to another D1 school have to sit out a year.

So, to answer your question: No, she would not have to sit out a year.

She can transfer and be eligible without sitting out a year.

I thought PSU-Harrisburg was mainly a “finishing” school. You really can’t do your first two years there, only your final two.

Things may have changed, and I don’t keep up.

I was just using the Satellites as a whole system, not just singling out Capitol Campus. Heck, I got my Master’s from Capitol so I know it’s not just a 2 year school. :wink:
