October 27, 2008 Question
If a student-athlete redshirted during his/her freshmen year and was injured and could not play in a later year, does he/she meet the basic criteria for a waiver of the five-year clock rule?
 
Answer: Five-year clock extensions are considered by the NCAA if a student-athlete has been deprived of the opportunity to compete by circumstances beyond the control of the student-athlete for more than one season. In this particular example, the student-athlete redshirted during his/her freshmen year. A redshirt year has been very clearly stated by the NCAA as a circumstance within the student-athletes control. Thus, in this example, the student-athlete would not meet the minimum criteria for a five year clock extension as only one opportunity (season) to participate was lost due to circumstances beyond his/her control.

September 1, 2008 Question
Would it be permissible for a parent or family member of a student-athlete to share a room with the athlete during an away trip or travel with the team on the trip if it doesn't increase the cost of the room or transportation?
 
Answer: No. NCAA Bylaw 16.6.1 states that an institution may not provide any expenses to a student-athlete's relatives or friends, except as specifically permitted. The specifically permitted situations are that the institution may provide the cost of actual and necessary expenses (e.g., transportation, lodging, meals and expenses associated with team entertainment functions) for the spouse and children (not parents or other family members) of an eligible student-athlete to accompany the student-athlete to a licensed postseason football game or an NCAA football championship in which the student-athlete is a participant, and in other sports, to one round (conducted at the site) of any NCAA championship in which the student-athlete is a participant. Also, an institution may reserve or secure lodging at any postseason event (other than a conference event) at a reduced or special rate for the parents (or legal guardians) and immediate family of a student-athlete who is a participant. It is not permissible for an institution to cover any portion of the cost of lodging, including any cost associated with reserving or securing lodging.

Answer:  A student-athlete is eligible for a maximum of four complimentary admissions per home and away competition in his/her sport.

June 23, 2008 Question
Do scholarships which student-athletes receive from outside organizations (high school booster club, civic organizations, etc.) count against a team's scholarship limitations?
 
Answer: Each student-athlete's situation is different and must be independently scrutinized to determine whether or not the scholarship from an outside organization would count against team scholarship limits. To make this determination the following factors to examine are (1) was the student-athlete recruited by the institution, (2) is the student-athlete on athletics scholarship and (3) and to what degree did athletics participation play in receiving the award.
 
If a student-athlete was not recruited and is not on athletics scholarship then the scholarship from the outside organization will not count against team limits regardless of the role athletic participation played in choosing the scholarship recipient. If the student-athlete was recruited and athletic participation was considered a major criterion in awarding the outside scholarship then it will count against team scholarship limits. In all other cases, if athletic participation was not a major criterion used by the entity that awarded the outside scholarship then it will not count against team scholarship limitations.
