Daily Compliance Item- 10/9/12- Exchange for Complimentary Admissions

Charity Stripe, a women’s basketball student-athlete at Ocean State University, assigns all four of her complimentary admissions to a home event.  One of the recipients is the owner of a local salon where Charity gets her manicures and pedicures.  The owner of the salon is a big basketball fan and told Charity that if she could get tickets to the home games, she would give Charity a free manicure once a week.  Is this arrangement permissible?

  1.  Yes, as long as the value of the manicure is less than or equal to the value of the tickets
  2. Yes, as long as the owner of the salon is not an agent
  3. No, this arrangement would be considered a violation
  4. No, complimentary admissions may only be provided to immediate family members

The answer is 3NCAA Bylaw states that a student-athlete may not receive payment from any source for his or her complimentary admissions and may not exchange or assign them for any item of value.
