Yes, it is possible to lose your athletic scholarship. Generally, it is difficult to do so because coaches don’t want to get a reputation for pulling scholarships, but it is still possible. Athletic scholarships are yearly contracts signed by the athlete and the school; they are not four-year guarantees. That means that the coach has the ability to decrease the amount or cancel it altogether if you do not meet the requirements for the scholarship.
There are several ways to lose your athletic scholarship from a college.
You can become ineligible academically by not keeping a GPA higher than 2.0, or committing a violation of student code that required disciplinary action.
College athletes can also violate NCAA rules regarding their amateurism or by accepting monetary gifts from boosters or people affiliated with the university.
You can also violate the terms of the athletic scholarship by not fulfilling certain obligations required by the contract.
It is also possible that due to your athletic output you can lose your scholarship. Meaning if you aren’t performing at a top level or if you get a significant injury you could lose your scholarship.
For all of these reasons it is so important to know the exact terms of the agreement you are signing. This way, you know exactly what you need to do to keep your athletic scholarship and avoid the trouble of losing any financial aid.
