Occasional Meals


A student-athlete or an entire team in a sport may receive an occasional family home meal from an institutional staff member or representative of athletics interests under the following conditions:

  1. The meal must be provided in an individual’s home, on campus, or at a facility that is regularly used for home competition and may be catered (student-athletes may only be treated to restaurant meals by an institutional staff member)
  2. Meals must be restricted to infrequent and special occasions [a rule of thumb to follow is two (2) such meals per semester]
  3. The institution may provide transportation to the student-athletes to attend the function
  4. The meal is pre-approved by the Compliance Office using the Occasional Meal Form (PDF)
