Daily Compliance Item- 9/15/14- Career Counseling

Ocean State University is going to have a career fair for its entire student body the first Wednesday in October.  Because the majority of student-athletes will be unable to attend this fair due to class, practice and/or competition schedules, the Athletic Department is going to host a separate career fair just for student-athletes the following Friday.  Is it permissible for an institution to host a career fair exclusively for student-athletes?
Yes.  NCAA Bylaw states that a student-athlete may use career counseling and internship/job placement services available exclusively to student-athletes, provided the student-athlete is not placed in a position in which the student-athlete uses his or her athletics ability.  (Adopted:  4/28/11)
