Daily Compliance Item- 1.25.16- Inclement Weather Extending Official Visit

Ocean State University conducted a few official visits over the weekend. Because of Winter Storm Jonas all incoming/outbound flights were cancelled, and the prospects were not able to depart campus within the 48 hour period.

Does Ocean State University have to report a violation?

No. NCAA Bylaw states that an official visit may extend beyond 48 hours for reasons beyond the control of the prospective student-athlete and the institution (e.g., inclement weather conditions, natural disaster, flight delays or cancellations, airport security activity). In such instances, the institution shall submit a report to the conference office noting the details of the circumstances. (Adopted: 4/26/07 effective 8/1/07)
