CIF Transfer Guidelines for Student-Athletes

St. Lucy’s has established enrollment policies in coherence with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) under the following conditions:

  • Accepts students based on available space;
  • Charges tuition for its educational services;
  • Has admissions requirements pertaining to academic standards and behavior.

As stated in CIF Bylaw 200.A.A(6) the CIF Bylaws shall serve as a deterrent to students who transfer or change schools for athletic reasons and to individuals who attempt to recruit (unduly influence) student-athletes or their parents to enroll in a school because of athletics. As stated in CIF Bylaw 200.A(2) the CIF Bylaws reinforce the principle that students attend school to receive an education first: athletic participation is secondary.

As per the CIF Blue Book, "undue influence is any act, gesture or communication (including accepting material or financial inducement to attend a CIF member school for the purpose of engaging in CIF competition regardless of the source) which is performed personally, or through another, which may be objectively seen as an inducement, or part of a process of inducing a student, or his/her parent or guardian, by or on behalf of, a member school, to enroll in, transfer to, or remain in, a particular school for athletic purposes." Violation of this policy may jeopardize the eligibility of the student.

A student-athlete must complete the appropriate transfer process and must be cleared by the CIF Southern Section office prior to any interscholastic competition.
