Clay Court is a full athletic scholarship men’s tennis student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU). Clay was also awarded an academic scholarship, so his athletic aid was reduced pursuant to NCAA financial aid limits. His equivalency against team limits is now 75%.
Clay is going to attend summer school and OSU would like to provide athletic aid to help with expenses. Which of the following is a true statement?
A. Clay may receive a 75% scholarship to attend summer school
B. Clay may receive a full scholarship to attend summer school
C. Clay may not receive any athletic aid to attend summer school
D. None of the above
The answer is B. NCAA Bylaw 188.8.131.52.2.3 states that if an institution provides a student-athlete with a full athletics grant during the academic year but is required to reduce the grant in accordance with Bylaw 15.1.4 (reduction when excess aid is awarded), the institution may provide the student-athlete full athletically related financial aid to attend the institution’s summer term.
