Compliance Corner: Ask Before Giving Your Tickets Away

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)

    NCAA rules prohibit an institution, its staff members, and its boosters from offering, providing, or arranging financial assistance or any other benefits for a prospective student-athlete, which the NCAA defines as any individual in high school, regardless of whether that person is being recruited by the University of Miami or even plays a sport.

    While the University can provide certain benefits to prospective student-athletes, including tickets to UM games, provided the tickets have been verified by the Compliance Office, UM staff members and boosters are not permitted to provide any type of “pre-college expenses” to anyone who is a prospective student-athlete. That means staff members may not donate or give their tickets to any high school-aged individual.

    Additionally, donating tickets or other items to be auctioned for a high school is specifically prohibited, as the funds raised by these auctions go directly to prospective student-athletes, even if they are not earmarked for specific individuals.

    It is of utmost importance that UM boosters and employees refrain from providing any benefits to UM student-athletes and prospective student-athletes unless and until they have contacted the compliance office for guidance on what benefits are permissible.

    As always, your efforts to help the University of Miami maintain a culture of compliance are greatly appreciated. For more compliance information, follow the UM Athletics Department on Twitter (@UCompliance), like them on Facebook (, or contact them via email,
