it depends on the school

I do not believe ND references 5 years, but I know that some do; the Mountain West Conference LOI paperwork that I've seen reference 5 years, but that could be because there is some difficulty in graduating in 4 years (or there was in the past) due to difficulty getting certain classes, etc.

This also does depend on sport; I'm referencing football here. I believe other sports are more "annually renewable" due to scholarship limits/restrictions/etc.
