Awards, Benefits and expenses for enrolled student-Athletes
A student-athlete shall not receive any extra benefit as defined in Bylaw Receipt by a student-athlete of an award, benefit or expense allowance not authorized by NCAA legislation renders the student-athlete ineligible for athletics competition in the sport for which the improper award, benefit or expense was received. If the student- athlete receives an extra benefit not authorized by NCAA legislation, the individual is ineligible in all sports.
For violations of Bylaw 16 in which the value of the benefit is $100 or less, the eligibility of the student-athlete shall not be affected conditioned upon the student-athlete’s repayment of the benefit to a charity of his or her choice. The student, however, is ineligible from the time the time the institution was notified of receipt of the impermissible benefit until the student- athlete repays the benefit.
Awards for enrolled fulltime SA’s may not include cash, gift certificates, cash equivalent award or any item negotiable for cash or trade or other services, benefits, or merchandise, for athletic participation including country club or sports club memberships.
Award. An award is an item given in recognition of athletics participation or performance. Excessive Expense. An excessive expense is one not specifically authorized under regulations of the Association concerning awards, benefits and expenses. Extra Benefit is any special arrangement by an institutional employee or a representative of the institution’s athletics interests to provide a student- athlete or the student-athlete’s relative or friend a benefit not expressly authorized by NCAA legislation. Receipt of a benefit by student-athletes or their relatives or friends is not a violation of NCAA legislation, if it is demonstrated that the same benefit is generally available to the institution’s students or their relatives or friends or to a particular segment of the student body.
