    According to a recent Flotrack interview with Beth Alford Sullivan, I think she said its not allowed. Athletes must remain at the same institution to receive the extra year.

      Monson wasn't getting an "extra" year. She still had an outdoor season left.

        But What was the alternative? Previously, Monson said she was considering staying another year, but not sure. After Wisconsin announced that they will not grant another year of eligibility to Seniors she said that just made the decision easier for her.
        Right...so really she is just going to continue running after college...these days the whole pro label is irrelevant after college eligibility is used up. Anyone can get an agent...

        Ps...I see gh has already said that....

          From this side of the pond I would say that technically he is a pro because he won't lose any eligibility from earning money from the sport. In practical terms he isn't a pro T&F athlete because he doesn't make a living, even part-time, from the sport because he doesn't do it any more.
