WAAY-TV reports the cuts to sports programs are only one part of a large effort to save money.
The changes are effective starting with the 2020-2021 school year. Student-athletes who want to join another school’s roster will be released without penalty and can transfer immediately, the university said in a statement.
If the student-athletes in these programs choose to continue their education at UAH, their current scholarships will be honored.
