2 NATIONAL LETTER OF INTENT NOVEMBER 2014

3 WHAT IS THE NATIONAL LETTER OF INTENT? THE NLI IS A BINDING AGREEMENT BETWEEN A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT- ATHLETE AND AN NLI MEMBER INSTITUTION. PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE AGREES TO ATTEND THE INSTITUTION FULL-TIME FOR ONE ACADEMIC YEAR INSTITUTION AGREES TO PROVIDE ATHLETICS FINANCIAL AID FOR ONE ACADEMIC YEAR BASIC PENALTY FOR NOT FULFILLING THE NLI AGREEMENT: SERVE ONE YEAR IN RESIDENCE AT THE NEXT NLI MEMBER INSTITUTION AND LOSE ONE SEASON OF COMPETITION IN ALL SPORTS

4 WHO ISSUES THE NLI? ONLY PARTICIPATING MEMBER INSTITUTIONS MAY ISSUE THE NLI TO A PSA NOT NLI MEMBERS: IVY LEAGUE, SERVICE ACADEMIES, DIVISION III INSTITUTIONS, NAIA INSTITUTIONS, PREPARATORY SCHOOLS OR JUNIOR COLLEGES

5 PROCESSING NLI NLI MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ATHLETICS FINANCIAL AID AGREEMENT (AID FROM AN ATHLETICS SOURCE) NLI MUST INCLUDE THE NCAA ID. ALL JUNIOR COLLEGE PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETES MUST ALSO HAVE AN NCAA ID INCLUDED ON THE NLI.

6 PROCESSING NLI CONT. NLI MAY NOT BE SIGNED PRIOR TO THE SIGNING DATES FOR THE APPLICABLE SPORT. NLI MUST INCLUDE A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN SIGNATURE IF THE PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE IS UNDER THE AGE OF 21, REGARDLESS OF MARITAL STATUS. NLI MUST BE SIGNED WITHIN 7 DAYS OF ISSUANCE DATE OR BY THE LAST DATE OF THE SIGNING PERIOD THE CONFERENCE OFFICE VALIDATES THE NLI TO ENSURE THE NLI AND ATHLETICS AID AGREEMENT ARE COMPLETE AND MEET ALL NLI AND NCAA REQUIREMENTS. NLI MUST BE FILED WITH THE CONFERENCE OFFICE WITHIN 14 DAYS OF FINAL SIGNATURE

7 FIRST DAY OF NLI SIGNING NLI'S SIGNED WITH LINDENWOOD DURING THE EARLY SIGNING PERIOD (NOVEMBER 2014) DEREK JETER SIGNED HIS NLI ON NOVEMBER 13 AT 10:00 A.M. HIS PARENT SIGNED ON NOVEMBER 19. HIS PARENT DID NOT NOTE THE TIME OF SIGNING. SHAWN JOHNSON SIGNED HER NLI ON NOVEMBER 13. HER PARENT REFUSES TO SIGN. JOHNSON IS 18 YEARS OLD. JONATHAN EDWARDS SIGNED HIS NLI ON NOVEMBER 13 AT 7:30 A.M. WITH LINDENWOOD. HE ALSO SIGNED HIS NLI ON NOVEMBER 13 AT 11:00 A.M. WITH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA. THE NLI WITH CENTRAL OKLAHOMA WAS ENTERED BY THE CONFERENCE OFFICE FIRST. ARE THESE NLI'S VALID OR INVALID?

8 FIRST DAY OF NLI SIGNING VALID: NLI MEETS THE 7-DAY SIGNING DEADLINE. PSA AND PARENT DO NOT HAVE TO SIGN THE NLI AND AID AGREEMENT ON THE SAME DAY. THE TIME IS ONLY NECESSARY IF ON THE FIRST SIGNING DATE. INVALID: MUST HAVE A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN SIGNATURE. COSIGNER REQUEST WILL NOT BE APPROVED FOR PARENT’S REFUSAL TO SIGN. PSA COULD SIGN ONLY THE ATHLETICS AID AGREEMENT IF THE INSTITUTION DOES NOT REQUIRE A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN SIGNATURE FOR A STUDENT 18 OR OLDER VALID: LINDENWOOD NLI. INVALID: CENTRAL OKLAHOMA NLI. THE TIME ON THE NLI DETERMINES WHICH NLI WAS SIGNED FIRST, NOT THE FIRST ENTRY IN THE NLI DATABASE.

9 WHO SIGNS THE NLI? HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR, PREP SCHOOL OR TWO-YEAR COLLEGE PSA ENROLLING IN A FOUR-YEAR INSTITUTION FOR THE FIRST TIME AND TRANSFERS ARE PERMITTED TO SIGN

10 SATISFYING THE NLI ONE-YEAR ATTENDANCE: A PSA MUST ATTEND THE SIGNING INSTITUTION FOR AT LEAST ONE ACADEMIC YEAR AS A FULL-TIME STUDENT TO SATISFY THE TERMS OF THE NLI. TWO-YEAR COLLEGE GRADUATION: A PSA WHO SIGNS, ENROLLS IN A TWO-YEAR COLLEGE INSTEAD OF THE SIGNING FOUR-YEAR INSTITUTION, AND THEN GRADUATES FROM THE TWO-YEAR COLLEGE WILL SATISFY THE TERMS OF THE NLI.

11 TWO-YEAR TRANSFERS IF PSA SIGNS AN NLI WHILE A TWO-YEAR COLLEGE STUDENT, HE/SHE WOULD NEED TO GRADUATE FROM THE TWO-YEAR COLLEGE UNDER TWO CONDITIONS: IF PSA HAS TO GRADUATE TO FULFILL NCAA 2-4 TRANSFER REQUIREMENT IF PSA HAS PREVIOUSLY SIGNED NLI THAT IS STILL VALID. IN THIS CASE, THE PREVIOUS NLI IS NO LONGER BINDING IF THE PSA GRADUATES FROM THE TWO- YEAR COLLEGE

12 RECRUITING BAN ONCE PSA SIGNS NLI, OTHER INSTITUTIONS AND CONFERENCES MUST CEASE CONTACT WITH PSA SIGNEE AND FAMILY MEMBERS ONCE ENROLLED, STUDENT-ATHLETE IS GOVERNED BY NCAA RECRUITING REGULATIONS

13 WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE NLI TO NO LONGER BE BINDING? DENIED ADMISSION: IF THE PSA HAS A WRITTEN DENIAL OF ADMISSION, NLI IS DECLARED NULL AND VOID INELIGIBLE: IS THE PSA DOES NOT MEET NCAA, INSTITUTIONAL OR CONFERENCE ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS, NLI IS DECLARED NULL AND VOID ONE-YEAR ABSENCE: IF THE PSA DOES NOT ENROLL AT THE NLI INSTITUTION FOR AT LEAST ONE ACADEMIC YEAR AND THE SCHOLARSHIP (IN THE SAME AMOUNT) IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE, NLI BECOMES NULL AND VOID. THIS ONE YEAR ABSENCE WOULD APPLY TO A SIGNEE WHO SERVES IN THE MILITARY OR ON A CHURCH MISSION FOR 12 MONTHS

14 HOW CAN A SIGNEE BE RELEASED FROM THE NLI AGREEMENT? NLI RELEASE REQUEST NLI APPEAL

15 ONE VALID NLI PSA WILL ONLY HAVE ONE VALID NLI IF NLI IS RENDERED INVALID (E.G. NOT FILED WITHIN 14 DAYS), PSA MAY SIGN SECOND NLI IN SAME SIGNING YEAR IF NLI IS RENDERED NULL AND VOID, THE PSA IS PERMITTED TO SIGN ANOTHER NLI THE FOLLOWING SIGNING YEAR IF NOT ENROLLED AT A FOUR- YEAR INSTITUTION. SINCE A PSA MAY ONLY SIGN ONE NLI ANNUALLY, IF GRANTED A COMPLETE RELEASE, PSA MAY NOT SIGN ANOTHER NLI DURING THAT SAME SIGNING YEAR.

16 PARTIAL QUALIFIER NLI REMAINS BINDING IF PSA IS A PARTIAL QUALIFIER (ATHLETICS AID PERMITTED) UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED ON INSTITUTION'S ATHLETICS AID AGREEMENT THAT PSA MUST BE ELIGIBLE FOR COMPETITION TO RECEIVE ATHLETICS AID.

17 FAILURE TO COMPLETE ADMISSIONS OR ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS IF A PSA FAILS TO SUBMIT THE NECESSARY ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS AND/OR APPLICATION TO DETERMINE AN ADMISSION DECISION OR FAILS TO SUBMIT THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTATION FOR AN INITIAL ELIGIBILITY DECISION AND HAS NOT ATTENDED CLASSES AT THE SIGNING INSTITUTION, THE NLI OFFICE PER ITS REVIEW WITH THE INSTITUTION WILL DETERMINE THE STATUS OF THE NLI. IF AN INSTITUTION HAS CONCERN THAT A PSA PURPOSELY FAILED TO PROVIDE ALL NECESSARY ACADEMIC CREDENTIALS TO THE INSTITUTION OR THE NCAA ELIGIBILITY CENTER, THE NLI OFFICE SHOULD BE NOTIFIED FOR FURTHER REVIEW. BASED ON ITS REVIEW, THE NLI OFFICE MAY DETERMINE THE NLI REMAIN BINDING. IF IT IS DETERMINED THAT THE PSA WAS INSTRUCTED BY THE INSTITUTION TO NOT COMPLETE THE ADMISSION OR INITIAL ELIGIBILITY PROCESS, THE NLI OFFICE MAY DECLARE THE NLI NULL AND VOID.

18 DELIVERY OF NLI COACH OR INSTITUTIONAL REPRESENTATIVE MAY NOT HAND DELIVER THE NLI OFF CAMPUS OR BE PRESENT OFF CAMPUS AT THE TIME A PSA SIGNS. NLI MAY BE DELIVERED BY EXPRESS MAIL, COURIER SERVICE, REGULAR MAIL, OR FACSIMILE. NLI TRANSMITTED TO AN INSTITUTION BY FACSIMILE OR ELECTRONICALLY IS CONSIDERED PERMISSIBLE.

19 DELAYED ENROLLMENT IF THE INSTITUTION'S ADMISSIONS OFFICE OR THE COACH DETERMINES THE PSA SHOULD DELAY ENROLLMENT FROM FALL TO SPRING, THEN THE NLI WOULD BE DECLARED NULL AND VOID. THE NLI WOULD REMAIN BINDING IF THIS IS THE PSA'S DECISION.

20 VOLUNTARILY WITHDRAW OF ATHLETICS AID IF A PSA IS AWARDED INSTITUTIONAL FINANCIAL AID, UNRELATED TO ATHLETICS, OF EQUAL OR GREATER VALUE THAN HIS OR HER SIGNED AWARD OF ATHLETICALLY RELATED FINANCIAL AID, THE PSA MAY, ON HIS OR HER INITIATIVE, RELEASE THE INSTITUTION OF ITS OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE THE ATHLETICALLY RELATED FINANCIAL AID. WHEN ATHLETICS AID IS CANCELED THE NLI BECOMES NULL AND VOID.

21 BINDING NLI IF A PSA DOES NOT SHOW UP FOR PRESEASON PRACTICE OR FALL ENROLLMENT, THE NLI REMAINS BINDING. IF A PSA QUITS THE TEAM, THE NLI REMAINS BINDING. IF A PSA DOES NOT COMPLETE THE ADMISSION OR NCAA ELIGIBILITY CENTER PROCESS, THE NLI REMAINS BINDING. IN ALL THE ABOVE, THE PSA DID NOT FULFILL THE NLI AGREEMENT TO ATTEND THE INSTITUTION FOR ONE ACADEMIC YEAR.

22 LET ME OUT! MARIANO RIVERA' MOTHER PASSED AWAY SO HE WANTS TO ATTEND COLLEGE IN HIS HOMETOWN TO TAKE CARE OF HIS BROTHER. KELLY SMITH DECIDES LINDENWOOD IS TOO FAR FROM HER EAST COAST HOME. ANDY MURRAY WANTS TO START TALKING TO OTHER SCHOOLS. NOW WHAT?

23 LET ME OUT! MARIANO RIVERA IS PROVIDED A COMPLETE RELEASE. HE IS NOT SUBJECT TO THE NLI PENALTY AND THE NLI RECRUITING BAN IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT. KELLY SMITH IS NOT GRANTED A COMPLETE RELEASE (NO RELEASE). SHE WILL HAVE TO SERVE ONE ACADEMIC YEAR IN RESIDENCE AND WILL LOST A SEASON OF COMPETITION. SMITH IS PERMITTED TO PRACTICE AND RECEIVE ATHLETICS AID AT THE NEXT NLI MEMBER INSTITUTION. SINCE ANDY MURRY ATTENDED LINDENWOOD FOR THE FALL SEMESTER, HE WOULD NEED PERMISSION TO CONTACT PER NCAA RULE. THE NLI RECRUITING BAN IS NOT APPLICABLE. ANDY MURRAY IS STILL SUBJECT TO THE NLI PENALTY FOR NOT ATTENDING LINDENWOOD FOR ONE ACADEMIC YEAR. PRACTICE AND ATHLETICS AID AT THE NEXT NLI MEMBER INSTITUTION IS PERMISSIBLE.
