This is a reminder about NCAA rules covering extra benefits for student-athletes. As Clemson University is a proud of member of the NCAA, our athletics staff and student-athletes are committed to the principle of athletics compliance and ensuring we play by the rules at all times. IPTAY members play a vital role in the support of our student-athletes, and it is crucial we all do nothing to jeopardize the eligibility of our student-athletes.
The basic NCAA extra benefits principle for student-athletes is that they should be treated the same as the rest of the general student population and should not be receiving something extra (e.g., tangible item, service) due to their status as a student-athlete. The provision of an extra benefit can render student-athletes ineligible and require them to go through the NCAA Student-Athlete Reinstatement process with the potential for mandated withholding from competition.
