New Division I Interpretation: Notification of Summer Financial Aid Award

On July 30, 2012, the academic  and membership affairs staff issued an interpretation concerning the notification of summer financial aid awards. Specifically, the staff confirmed that “an institution that is providing a financial aid award to a student-athlete for attendance at the institution’s summer session is not required to provide the recipient with a written statement of the amount, duration, conditions or terms of the award.”

This interpretation referenced  NCAA Division I Bylaws 15.2.8 (summer financial aid) and 15.3.2.3 (written statement requirement); a staff interpretation (5/31/12, Item c) and an official interpretation (10/14/92, Item No. 5-c-(4)) which have been archived].

In light of this interpretation, the Michael L. Buckner Law Firm recommends institutions’ athletics compliance include the interpretation in the next scheduled rules-education session for athletics staff members and institutional staff members whose responsibilities interface with athletics aid.
