Orn A. Ment is an international soccer student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU). Unfortunately Orn is not able to travel home to her see her family during the upcoming vacation period. Is OSU permitted to provide expenses for Orn to remain in the locale of the institution during the vacation period?
Yes. A previously approved incidental expense waiver states that it is permissible to provide meals and lodging for an international student-athlete to stay in a hotel or at a staff member’s home during a holiday break. (11/21/00)
