Daily Compliance Item- 3.28.16- 15.2.8.1.2.3- Summer Athletic Aid

Slider is a full athletic scholarship baseball student-athlete at Ocean State University (OSU). Slider 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 60%.

Slider 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. Slider may receive a 60% scholarship to attend summer school
B. Slider may receive a full scholarship to attend summer school
C. Slider may not receive any athletic aid to attend summer school
D. None of the above

The answer is B. NCAA Bylaw 15.2.8.1.2.3 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.
