Daily Compliance Item- 11/7/12- 13.6.7.1- Complimentary Admissions

The Ocean State University women’s basketball team will be hosting a WNIT game at their on-campus facility in a few weeks.  During that particular weekend, the team will be hosting 3 prospective student-athletes on official visits.  Is it permissible to provide these prospects with complimentary admissions to the WNIT game?

Yes.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 7/2/03- Complimentary Admissions to Preseason Events (I)- states that a member institution may provide complimentary admissions to a prospect to attend preseason (as distinguished from postseason) home athletics events.
