Daily Compliance Item- 12/23/13- Sending Transcripts to the Eligibility Center

Ocean State University (OSU) has a few NLI signees that need to send transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center for evaluation.  Can OSU help the signees’ high schools pay for this expense?

Yes.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 12/20/13- Institution Providing Expenses for a High School to Send Transcripts to the NCAA Eligibility Center (I) – states that  it is permissible for an institution to provide expenses (e.g., Federal Express charges) for a high school to send a prospective student-athlete’s academic transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center, provided the prospective student-athlete has signed a National Letter of Intent or the institution’s written offer of admission and/or financial aid or the institution has received his or her financial deposit in response to its offer of admission.
