Financial Assistance & Aid Limits
Q: Are we expected to report financial aid that we awarded to student-athletes during the 2020-2021 academic year, even though fall, winter, and some spring sport athletes were not charged a season of competition? (Updated October 2021)
Q: Our women's soccer team began to practice in fall 2020, but we never got the chance to compete in any competitions. Therefore none of our track and field student-athletes meet the definition of a varsity athlete for financial aid reporting purposes. How do we report financial aid if we technically did not have any varsity athletes? (Updated October 2021)
Please keep in mind that the definition of a countable varsity student has changed. Any student-athlete who participates in more than 20% of the maximum allowable number of varsity contests in a particular sport is considered countable.
Q: We have a student-athlete who competes on both the football and outdoor track and field teams. He was unable to represent our school in varsity football games in the fall of 2020, but our outdoor track and field team competed in spring 2021. Is this student-athlete still considered a dual-sport athlete and can we still split his aid between the two sports? (Updated October 2021)
