Daily Compliance Item- 8/22/12- 15.3.4.1- Increase in Athletic Aid

Flick Pass is a soccer student-athlete at Ocean State University.  Flick was awarded a 50% athletic scholarship for the 2012-13 academic year.  Flick really impressed the coaches during the pre-season period and earned a spot in the starting line up for the first regular season contest.  On the first day of classes, the Head Coach rewarded Flick’s hard work by increasing her athletic aid to 75%.
Is this permissible?
Yes.  NCAA Bylaw 15.3.4.1 states that institutional financial aid may be increased for any reason at any time.
With the adoption of NCAA Proposal 2011-97, the restrictions associated with increasing athletic aid after the period of the award began were removed.
