New NCAA Division III Interpretation: Transportation to Enroll

On March 2, 2012, the academic and membership affairs staff issued an interpretation concerning institutional transportation for a prospective student-athlete’s initial arrival at the institution to attend classes. Specifically, the staff confirmed that “an institution may provide transportation from any bus or train station or airport to campus on the occasion of a prospective student-athlete’s initial arrival at the institution to attend classes, including the prospective student-athlete’s initial arrival to attend classes in a summer term or the prospective student-athlete’s initial arrival at the institution to participate in preseason practice activities when the prospective student-athlete will remain in the locale of the institution to begin classes.”

This interpretation referenced NCAA III Bylaw 13.5.4 (transportation to enroll) and an official interpretation (2/02/06, Item No. 7b) which has been archived].

In light of this interpretation, the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends institutions’ athletics compliance: a) include the interpretation in the next scheduled rules-education session for the athletics staff and coaches; and b) review current institutional procedures regarding student-athlete initial enrollment transportation.
