Pac-12 reforms guarantees four-year scholarships, improves health care

Scholarships for athletes in all Pac-12 Conference sports will be guaranteed for four years under major reforms.

Previously, scholarships were guaranteed for one year and renewable after each year.

Among other changes approved by presidents and chancellors of the conference’s 12 schools:

  • Student-athletes who leave school before graduating will be able to use the remainder of their educational expenses later to earn their degrees.
  • Medical expenses for student-athletes who are injured during their college athletic careers will be covered for up to four years after a student-athlete leaves the institution.
  • Student-athletes who transfer between Pac-12 institutions will be able to receive athletic scholarships immediately.
  • Student-athletes will be represented in the Conference governance structure.

The bulk of the reforms begin at the start of the 2015-16 school year.

Here is the full press release from the Pac-12 announcing the reforms.
