A prospective student-athlete is a high school student who has begun the ninth grade, regardless of whether the student participates in athletics. In addition, you are considered a prospective student-athlete if an institution provided you or your family financial assistance or any other benefit that is not offered to other prospective student-athletes.
NOTE: It is impermissible for alumni, boosters or representatives of athletics interest to be involved in the recruiting process.
A prospect remains a prospect until one of the following occurs:
- The individual registers and enrolls in a minimum full-time program of studies and attends classes in any term of a four-year collegiate institution's regular academic year;
- The individual participates in a regular squad practice or competition at a four-year collegiate institution that occurs before the beginning of any term; or
- The individual officially registers and enrolls and attends classes during the summer prior to initial enrollment and receives institutional athletics aid.
