In all sports other than men’s basketball, you can have one expense-paid (official) visit to a particular campus beginning on the opening day of classes of your senior year. In men’s basketball, you may have official visits beginning on January 1 of your junior year in high school. You may receive no more than five official visits. This restriction applies even if you are being recruited in more than one sport. Prior to an official visit you must register with the NCAA Eligibility Center, present the institution your high-school (or college) academic transcript and submit a test score from a PSAT, SAT, PLAN or ACT taken on a national test date under national testing conditions to the institution. Your academic transcript may be a photocopy of your official high-school (or college) transcript.
During your official visit (which may not exceed 48 hours), you may receive round-trip transportation between your home (or high school) and the campus, and you (and your parents) may receive meals, lodging and complimentary admissions to campus athletics events. A coach may only accompany you on your official visit when the transportation occurs by automobile and all transportation occurs within the 48-hour period. Meals provided to you (and/or your parents) on an official visit may be provided either on or off the institution's campus.
The complimentary admissions you receive may provide you seating only in the facility's general seating area. You may not be given special seating (e.g., press box, bench area). In addition, a student host may help you (and your family) become acquainted with campus life. The host may spend $30 per day to cover all costs of entertaining you (and your parents, legal guardians or spouse); however, the money can't be used to purchase souvenirs such as T-shirts or other college mementos. Additionally, during a campus visit, the school may provide you with a student-athlete handbook.
