Clemson Compliance Corner - NCAA Rules Covering Complimentary Admissions

Please remember, as an IPTAY member you are considered a representative of an institution’s athletics interests (i.e., booster) for Clemson University. As such, the NCAA has strict rules concerning boosters and complimentary admissions. While the NCAA legislates the number of complimentary admissions an eligible student-athlete may receive in his or her respective sport, it is impermissible for a booster to purchase such complimentary admissions from a student-athlete. Such an action could render a student-athlete ineligible for competition. Please do not contact student-athletes and/or their family or friends in an effort to purchase their complimentary admissions.

Additionally, student-athletes, their family, friends, and prospects (i.e., generally 9th – 12th graders, prep school, or junior college students) may not receive free tickets from boosters or access to suite viewing. Such an action is contrary to NCAA extra benefit and recruiting inducement rules and can render student-athletes and/or prospective student-athletes ineligible.
