Daily Compliance Item- 9/5/12-, Photographs to Prospects

The Ocean State University (OSU) Women’s Basketball Coaches would like to include a photograph as an attachment to emails sent to prospects.  The picture would include the renovated arena where they play.  This particular picture was not created for recruiting purposes.  It was recently posted on OSU’s website available for the public to see.  Is it permissible for the coaches to send this picture to prospects?


Yes.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 8/30/12- Photographs as Attachments to General Correspondence and Electronic Transmissions (I)- states that an institution may send a photograph to a prospective student-athlete as an attachment to general correspondence (printed on plain white paper with black ink) or electronic transmissions, provided the information in the photograph was not altered or staged for a recruiting purpose.
