Daily Compliance Item- 9/17/14- Retroactive Aid

Crease Man is a lacrosse student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU).  Crease’s coach decided to provide her with a full athletic scholarship during the 4th week of classes.  Can OSU provide her the full amount or does it have to be prorated based on the remaining charges for that term?
The scholarship will have to be prorated.  NCAA Bylaw states that institutional financial aid awarded to an enrolled student-athlete after the first day of classes in any term may not exceed the remaining room and board charges and educational expenses for that term and may not be made retroactive to the beginning of that term.
