Contacts with Currently Enrolled Student-Athletes

Don't

Provide a student-athlete, their relatives or friends any benefit or special arrangement (e.g., use of an automobile, promise of employment after graduation, discounted prices or free services or products to a student-athlete). The NCAA considers these "extra benefits" and they are specifically prohibited.

Provide payment of any expenses (e.g., room, board, transportation) for friends or relatives to visit the student-athletes where they are enrolled.

Expend funds to entertain student-athletes, their friends or relatives.

Use the name or picture of an enrolled student-athlete to directly advertise, recommend or promote sales or the use of a commercial product or service of any kind.

Provide any payment of expense or loan of any automobile for a student-athlete.

Provide awards or gifts to student-athletes for their athletic performance. All awards must conform to NCAA regulations and must be approved by the institution.

Do

Feel free to invite a student-athlete to your home for a home cooked meal but only infrequently on special occasions (e.g., birthday, Thanksgiving). Also, you may provide transportation for the student-athlete to attend the meal function at your home.

Feel free to invite a team for dinner at your home or to meet with a group of alumni in a city where they are competing. The NCAA permits student-athletes AS A TEAM to receive special benefits not permitted as individuals. Arrangements for such events must be made in advance with the athletic department.
