Daily Compliance Item- 11.25.15- Student Host During Vacation Period

Ocean State University (OSU) men’s ice hockey coaches would like to provide Zam Boni, a senior prospect, with an an official visit. The only time Zam is able to visit campus is during OSU’s vacation period next month. One of the current student-athletes volunteered to be the host, but he lives in the dorm which closes prior to Zam’s visit.

Since the dorm is closed, the coaches would like the host to stay in the hotel room with Zam. Is this permissible?

No. NCAA Staff Interpretation- 4/13/94- Student Host Staying in Hotel Room With Prospect– states that an institution, at its discretion, may allow a student host to stay in the prospective student-athlete’s hotel room during an official visit, provided the official visit does not occur during avacation period.
