Daily Compliance Item- 11.24.15- CARA Time Limits During an Institution’s Interim Term

True or False??

If a student-athlete enrolls in classes during an optional interim term (e.g., mini term) during the institution’s official vacation period at the conclusion of the fall semester, he/she is subject to the daily and/or weekly hour limitations.

FALSE. NCAA Staff Interpretation- 5/31/91- Time limits for athletically related activities during member institution’s mini-term- states that the daily and weekly hour limitations do not apply to countable athletics related activities during a member institution’s mini term (e.g., “4-1-4”) that is not mandatory.
